Funding Classroom Libraries:  Funding Classroom Libraries It is not now, nor has it ever been, the intent of the Smart Step Literacy Lab Classroom Project to replace or do away with the school library. According to literacy lab philosophy, the library media center is the hub of the school. Classroom libraries are intended to compliment, not compete with media centers. School Districts should never funnel library funding into the classroom libraries. Funding Classroom Libraries:  Funding Classroom Libraries Mentoring new literacy lab teachers in finding funding for classroom libraries is a great way to create collaboration: Scholastic Book Clubs Bonus Points Look for the big bonus point months 22X’s Adopt-A- Book Read-A-Thon Corporate sponsors Be creative Library Gold by Jason Whitaker:  Library Gold by Jason Whitaker A name destined for the record books. He’s the fastest twelve year old in the state And some say he’s headed for Olympic gold, But last week he stood in my library And told me he hated to read. “Books are for girls,” he said, half-serious, And headed for the track. Slide16:  So this morning, in the hallway, I witnessed a small miracle When Jason, His head buried in a book, Walked directly into a wall. Slide17:  I couldn’t restrain a laugh, And hearing me he proffered the book by way of explanation, “It’s the one you gave me last week,” he stammered. Slide18:  “I see that,” I answered, And unable to resist I added, “That one must be for boys.” If someday Jason wins the gold I’ll cheer him proud and tall, But I’ll cherish the memory of a boy with a book Who walked into a wall.
