Library scheduled to open, volunteers needed!

21 August 2015 Written by  

We would like to open our new library on September 10th with a ceremony, but we need volunteers over the next two weeks to make that happen.

There are an estimated 300 "people" hours left of work to do to bring it all together (labeling non-fiction primarily). Our core team is committed to being here for support, training and working alongside you over the next two weeks. You are welcome to bring older children, grandparents, neighbors, and anyone who loves to read and believes in the importance of libraries.

One of our volunteers commented recently, "The school library was my safe place as a child. I am not quite sure what I would have done without it." Our students have been without a proper school library for nine years. Yes, they have great classroom libraries and, yes, many of our families visit the local county libraries, but the engagement in reading that happens in a school library is quite different.

School libraries especially support at-risk students and can potentially narrow the achievement gap. A study done in 2008 in Oregon indicated that schools with the best Oregon Statewide Assessment reading and language scores had teachers who were twice as likely to take their students to the school library (Scholastic , 2008).
