Students have a voice in our world and the power to impact events with those young voices. We believe our students can make a difference, with one donated book at a time...or even better...a Library in a Box!
Library in a Box is a completely student driven project developed at Bay Farm School’s Media Center to share the love of reading with other students during times of emergency or natural disaster. From start to finish... personal book donations, book sorting, theme development, book clustering/bundling, letter writing, team photos, box design, marketing logos/labels, and finally to the completed project, students run the show.
Our students love to read, they donate their gently read books to our schoolwide project each year, and create and manage the project:
Our project is a real world application of library skills, life skills, and H3 skills we focus on during our Media Center visits. As our project begins to be known from our website and word of mouth, other schools are asking us how the project works. We see that this project can be developed, replicated, and shared, so that other schools can also work together to make an impact on our world in a positive way and help more children enjoy the love of reading.
