“Welcome My Students Back to School With New Library Books!”

“Dear PoPville,

I would LOVE to add some new books to the shelves when kids come back to school – I can’t think of a better way to welcome them back to their library! Daily reading for pleasure and information is such a critical part of literacy development, and the best way for me to help my students become passionate, proficient readers is stock the school library with books they just can’t put down.

I’ve purchased what I can afford out of pocket, but there are so many new, amazing, diverse books that I created a DonorsChoose project in case anyone wants to help me add to the library shelves. Until August 26th, DonorsChoose will double donations up to $50 with the code LIFTOFF.”
