“Books! We’re getting books!!” (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

You can fuel book love.

Make a donation of $5 or more to a fundraiser being run by Coupeville Elementary teacher Christi Messner, and the money will go to make sure all of her students have a new book to take home each month during the coming school year.

“Scholastic is an amazing company that provides low cost books to students and teachers,” Messner said. “Sadly, times are changing and many families cannot afford to purchase these books to have at home.

“Print rich environments aren’t the norm at many homes anymore,” she added. “How amazing would it be if ALL of my students could receive one free book every month?!”

Deeply-committed teachers like Messner, whose own daughter Katie will be a freshman at CHS this fall, continue the work embraced by my mother, who worked as a children’s librarian when I was younger.

The book you buy today may fuel the birth of the teacher or librarian of tomorrow.

Or if not, your donation will still provide a ray of sunshine in the life of Coupeville’s youngest superstars.

“We would love to pass on the love of reading and provide books for them to have at home,” Messner said. “Being a teacher, the greatest joy is watching students fall in love with books.”
