Students Feel the Impact

Years ago, I guided my students through a book project that opened their eyes to all of the behind the scenes work that goes into the books they read. My students were then able to write and publish a book due to the financial support of the Avon Education Foundation. Given my positive experience with AEF in the past, I was thrilled to once again have the opportunity to give students the chance to experience something new with a literary connection.

Last year, Ms. Dunn and I took our classes on a journey to start a Little Free Library at Thompson Brook School. A Little Free Library is a “Take a book, return a book” free book exchange. With the help of the AEF, we received money to purchase and install a library at TBS. Our students picked out the library to buy, chose its location, helped dig the hole, made custom bookmarks, selected the books to start off with, stamped each of them, and even spread soil and planted grass around the library. Now this library is available for the entire Avon community, and will encourage reading for years to come.
