Books for a Buck

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​"Books for a Buck" ​Literacy Project: Growing Readers One Book at a Time

Our Goal: to place new & gently used books into the hands of ALL our students

Our book cart is open every Friday. Children browse and purchase books during lunchtime. Books may be purchased for $1 or our students can earn "Welsh Book Bucks"for a variety of literacy activities; book talks, book reports, posters, gains in reading progress, etc.

Generous donations from the community and Welsh families allowed us to purchase a new book for every student in December. Ongoing donations allow us to distribute "Welsh Book Bucks" each week; ensuring that ALL our students have opportunities to purchase books.

Our project has placed over 1800 books into the hands of our students since October 2010! 

How you can help:
  • Donate new & gently used books
  • Make a donation - every $1 donated purchases a book for a child
