The Johnson Elementary School librarian is raising funds to replace missing books
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -
As a Charlottesville librarian takes inventory of her books this summer, she is asking for the community's help to replace a number of books that were lost throughout the school year.
Rebecca Flowers, the librarian at Johnson Elementary School, has started a fundraiser on donorschoose.org to raise just over $800.
She says that these funds will be enough to replace 50 hardback library books.
“We lose a lot of our most popular titles, and sometimes the bad part is if you are missing, like, the third book in a series and a student gets really into the series and reads books one and two, they come to three and we don’t have it because it’s gone missing and we haven’t been able to replace it,” says Flowers.
Currently, the fundraiser has raised about half of its goal.
