Tips for Enlarging Your Class Library

What follows are suggestions for finding books for your class library.
  • Join a Scholastic Book Club and use bonus points to order free books.
  • Ask parents to contribute books their children no longer use.
  • Visit yard and library sales and purchase books, which are often priced below a dollar each.
  • Apply for a grant that gives funds toward books for school.
  • Ask your principal for funds; you never know when there are extra dollars available.
  • Invite your school's PTA to run a fundraiser for classroom libraries.
Please share what you do to enlarge your class library collections. When students have access to inviting and enjoyable books, reading can become a free choice experience that they repeatedly turn to.
