September

Building Classroom Libraries

for all grades and all subjects!


We should be curators of our libraries, not just collectors. Offering students an engaging, diverse classroom library requires more than buying books and putting them on bookshelves . . . managing a classroom library requires curation -- selecting the best most current materials for both curriculum needs and student interests.         -Donalynn Miller
If you are wondering how to get started on a classroom library, how to strengthen your existing one, or how to create reading nooks, check out these articles by Choice Literacy teachers:
