Help needed at E.B. Stoner Hill Elementary

Hello!

My name is Karen Meadows and I am the Librarian at E.B. Williams Stoner Hill Elementary. I have a book fair coming up and am grabbing at straws trying to get more books into the hands of my students. The vast majority of my students never bring more than $5, sadly sometimes the little ones bring change they find thinking it will buy them a book. I wanted to know if any of you would be interested in contributing money, time (help setting up and decorating which takes some time!), books, decorations, etc. or even sharing with others the need we have here. Even if it's a suggestion!

I plan to stay open late one evening so some of the local high school students can come purchase books for my students from their wish lists. Kind of like an Angel Tree? I am also thinking about having a "Read In" (the theme is "Feeling Groovy: Peace, Love, Books") for families to bring their children to hear guest readers and to reinforce the importance of reading to/with their children. Would anyone be interested in being a guest reader?

I only have about 260 students so any monetary donation would purchase several books. I have worked with Scholastic to tailor my fair to primarily have books $5 and under. 

My fair will be delivered on the 19th and I should have it set up by the 21st. It will be here thru Friday, May 6th, which is our Field Day. Even though we have the highest parental attendance that day, they prefer to spend money on $8 turkey legs, etc! I overheard some of my students last year on Field Day begging their parents to let them go to the Book Fair only to be told no. My students want to read and LOVE books but it just not a priority with most of their families. 

Any contributions/suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. If you don't think you can help I totally understand, this is a busy time of year for all of us! My direct number in the library is 603-7033 and my cell is (318)471-1984.

Thanks for reading this and feel free to pass this email to anyone else who may could help.

Have a blessed day!
