Barnes & Noble teaming up with Nashua schools to create classroom libraries
Superintendent Mark Conrad has repeatedly made the case that one of the first steps in inspiring kids to become lifelong, independent readers is to get books into their hands. Individual classroom libraries give kids a chance to read early, and often.
Barnes & Noble Manager Jennifer Wagner said participants at the fair register at the store. A portion of money shoppers spend on books will be used to provide a gift card to teachers who can then buy books for the classroom libraries.
“It’s almost like a double dip,” said Wagner. “Even a portion of the proceeds from those donated books will go back to the teachers.”
“There’s nothing like wandering around a bookstore and finding a book you didn’t know existed,” he said.
“The books they have chosen are in line with the Common Core standards and are for different grade levels,” said Wagner. “Not every book is appropriate .”
As a mom of an 8-year-old reader and someone who is in the book business, Wagner said the classroom libraries are a great project that she believes will help encourage kids to read.
