Creating a welcoming and inspiring space for our students is an important part of being a teacher-librarian.
Unfortunately, school libraries are often underfunded. Click here for ideas on how to make your library welcoming on a budget. There are grants out there for school libraries! It's a lot of work researching and applying for grants, but the payoff is well worth it. Search for grants from businesses and organizations in your area, like this one from Indigo.
I was lucky to get some grant money for the library I'm currently in. I've been able to bring in new books, furniture, and technology. Although, I still use a lot of DIY and recycled goods to make fun activities and decor in the library, as you will see in my slideshow below.
