|1. Call to Action/Donations|
Before and During the Project
1-2 weeks before beginning the Library in a Box we announced the project to our community and requested donations.
We made our first announcement at our daily Morning Ceremony where the whole school assembles before the beginning of school each day to hear school news and upcoming events. We then followed up weekly with blurbs in our online newsletter and take home classroom news.

We asked for gently used books donated from home to our Media Center. We provided a large wagon and bins for daily collection. We encouraged students to make book marks and use special note stationary (some provided from us) to write something about the book they were donating and why they chose it to send.
