Recently DonorsChoose.org had a special #FillEveryShelf day, where all projects for books were matched by donors. Our school was wonderfully blessed by several donors, who gave toward our project, “Wild About Wimpy Kid Books.” We have a complete set of these titles in the media center, but it is rare and very lucky for a student to find one waiting on the bookshelf to be checked out. When I found out about this special match, I knew that my children needed more Diary of a Wimpy Kid titles in our library media center. My students couldn’t wait to open the box to see what the donors had given. They were shocked to find an entire set of this entertaining series, plus an extra copy of the first book. During the box opening, the students had the opportunity to start reading one (or more) of the books and they helped me start the task of processing all of these books. Each child stamped a book to help get them shelf ready. We are so very thankful for our donors, Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and DonorsChoose.org.
Our school has benefited greatly in the past from our partners at DonorsChoose.org and we greatly appreciate all they have done for us! Because of this site, our school news show has lighting and a professional background. The students’ science fair project boards at our school can have gorgeous letters cut out of vinyl with our Silhouette machine. The kindergarten library section has forward-facing shelves that make selecting books a breeze. A Lego Wall makes every child smile that comes into our media center through our front door. We have been truly blessed with these special touches, which make our media center unique, thanks to our DonorsChoose.org community!
