Our students indicate we need books:
- to expand our vocabulary
- to learn more
- to practice reading
- for fun
- to support our mental well-being (quiet time and focus)
- to expand our ideas and thinking
- because books nourish kids' imaginations and inspire them to dream
- because Books provide the opportunity for inspiration, thought and reflection. They also nurture our creative side and inspire imagination and visualization.
- because reading in the elementary years encourages a life-long love of reading
In addition, our library and school would benefit from an increase in books:
- to replace older books (out of date - more up to date books of interest)
- to replace 'well used' books (damaged, worn, etc.)
- to increase the types (genre) of books in our library (more variety of reading topics and types - graphic novels, fiction, non-fiction, etc.)
- to increase books that are more inclusive (more diverse in culture, family, interests, etc.)
- to increase the types of reading opportunities for students (e-reading, audio with print books, etc.)
- we are a school that has a diverse population and struggle to do fundraising for additional books in our school
- we are creating a Learning Commons - increasing our non-fiction books to support our interests in diverse areas will help support this endeavour!

My favourite childhood book was entitled ‘Mooch the Messy’. Mooch went on many adventures and I could relate well to his character!
My mother, without a doubt, is the one who ensured both my sister and I loved reading by modelling and exposing us to many, many books. Not a birthday or Christmas went by without us receiving books from her, and it was often (and still is) her gift of choice for everyone! Even if they don’t ...
