Brainerd Public Schools Foundation Seeks Donations For New Books For “Dream Big Project”
The Brainerd Public Schools Foundation is seeking donations to raise the funds needed to purchase 2,020 high-interest books for their K-8 classroom libraries, as part of their “Dream Big” initiative with the Big Event theme, “2020 Vision – The Future is Bright.”
Each year the “Dream Big Project” announces a new project, and this year’s goal is to raise enough funds to purchase 2,020 books for the year 2020. According to the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation, studies show students experience greater academic success when they have quick access to classroom libraries that contain between 600-1,000 high-interest books.
The goal of purchasing 2,020 books was set in place because students are much more likely to become life-long readers when they have a choice in what they read and access to the books they’ll love. Each donation of $10 helps the BPSF buy a new high-quality book for a classroom.
