Glenallen Book Bank

With the help of volunteers, we established a book bank at Glenallen Elementary School then we shipped them 5,000 books, and now it is open for all kids Monday through Thursday from June 28th to August 11th. The volunteers that want Student Service Learning hours can get some from Glenallen Elementary School by organizing the book bank and showing people around. At least 200 kids have used the book bank.

Our primary motivation is helping the kids get books because the library is being rebuilt for the next two years. The kids have easy access to the book bank because they live nearby. The book bank promotes summer reading. Kids can travel the short distance and are permitted six books per visit.

The principal Mr. Moran's motivation for hosting the book bank is helping kids maintaining the same reading level, or achieving a higher reading level. They will bring back the book bank next summer because it was a prodigious success. Everyone in the school was crawling all over it. Reading over the summer promotes academic success and prepares students for the next school year.
