We need your help to spend $5,000!

Our "Browsing for Biographies" proposal has been selected for a 2014 Illinois State Library LSTA grant to purchase 225+ new biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. The new books will have immediate use with the English I classes during first quarter next fall, and then will be available for other projects the rest of the year. The money will arrive April 1 and I will place orders through April 18. Our goal is to have most of the books on the shelves by May 30.

Please send us the names of people whose stories you think our students should read or would enjoy reading. These could be books related to your content area or ones you've read for pleasure reading. Thank you to the five staff members who sent suggestions already, such as Louis Zamperini's story in Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.

Special thanks to junior Kevin Christensen, who has given us 50+ names that interest him!
