Highlight on Reading!

This week, we expanded our library to include a brand new Reading Room in 208. This is a bright and airy space that now welcomes our students and gives them the opportunity to explore great books and read them in comfort! Through donations of time, resources, and money, this room was transformed in just one weekend. Thank you to all of our donors for creating this incredible space!

This is just Phase 1 of our library expansion project. If you are at all interested in donating to this project, please email Dr. Rogers at deborah.rogers@slps.org! We would love to have you on board with our reading ambitions!

Library Expansion Phase 2: Donations Needed!

In our next phase of development, we would like to creatively use each part of the Reading Room to get our students excited about books and give them better access to them. We are seeking donations for the following items: iPads with headphones for a listening station for emerging readers, computers for research and reading apps, poetry corner, wall decor, wall murals painted directly on the walls (any artists willing to work over the weekend?), an exciting piece hanging from the ceiling, book advertisements, non-florescent lighting, more rugs, more flexible seating options, more bookshelves, and of course, more books!
