Using the Internet to build up Schuylkill Valley's library

Using the Internet to build up Schuylkill Valley's library | School Library Digest | Scoop.it

Donating to the Schuylkill Valley Elementary School library is now just a few computer mouse clicks away.

 

The school has launched a fundraising effort to get some new books on its shelves, said Amber Rubendall, school librarian. The initial goal is to raise $1,000 by February.

 

"I thought, 'Why don't we give this a shot and see how it goes?' " Rubendall said of the fundraiser.

 

The school is using a free Web program called Save Our School Library, or SOS Library, in which people can go online and select books from a wish list to donate. They also can donate money directly to the library on the site.

I do just that with this blog, the library website, twitter, email blasts, discussions with my principal, notices in the daily memo and articles in the school monthly newsletter. Since I became a librarian, I have used whatever media was available to advertise the library. I had to.
