You, my wonderful readers, go to the library with your kids. I know this. Now I’m wondering about your home libraries; so is Target. And Target wants to give one of you a . . . NOOK . . . and to tell you about the Target School Library Makeovers and Literacy Pilot program.
Nice, right? 🙂
School libraries need our help – badly. (Did you see this post about DC Schools cutting almost 50 librarians?!!)
Target is helping; renovating 32 school libraries with more books, new furniture, carpet, and shelves, and a full technology upgrade. In addition, each child in the school will receive seven new books for their home library.
In fact, why don’t we talk home libraries for a minute? What’s your home library situation?
As for me, I’m a scatter-the-children’s-books-around-the-house kind of gal. Here’s how I organize our books.
Living Room: Built-In Book Shelves
Basement: Free Standing Book Shelves
Bedroom: Wall Shelf
Bedroom: Plastic Tub
Bedroom: Shoe Shelf
Anyplace: Wooden Crates
How do you organize your kids’ books?
Do you have them in one central place or a little here and there?
Comment with your home library system and you’ll be entered to win the prize package from Target worth $500 including
– a Nook
– 10 age-appropriate books
– 1 bookshelf
– 1 blanket
– 1 $50 Target Gift Card
– 1 “Fatboy” chair
leave your answer to the question (How do you organize your kids’ books? Do you have them in one central place or a little here and there?) by midnight EST Sunday, May 20, 2012.
