Did you know the current budget for the Walnut Acres Library is $0?
Our childrens’ reading fluency is fundamental to their learning and our library is unable to order new books and replenish basic supplies such as barcode stickers.
It is heartbreaking when we take a favorite book off the shelves because it’s coming apart, or witness eager hands grab for the only graphic novels available. Our children shouldn’t have their enthusiasm for reading dampened because they can’t check out a book they want to read.
Libraries across the world are updating their environments to dynamic, lively places for collaboration, discussion, and creation. Our library should be a destination for finding engaging stories and be an environment that nurtures the love of reading. For this reason, we are also seeking to add a creative dimension to our library with supplies to bring reading to life like graphic-novel design materials and origami, among others.
Your generous donation will help fund:
Purchase of new books, with a focus on graphic novels and early reader chapter books
Replacement of damaged, high-demand books
Library circulation supplies such as compatible barcodes and book mending tape
Creative supplies like blank graphic novel templates, art pens, origami paper, and more
