Community Bookshelf at Swenson Arts and Technology High School
In March, we were contacted by a counselor at Swenson Arts and Technology High School with a request for current SAT and ACT prep books for students. We quickly fulfilled her request and then expanded our partnership to include a Community Bookshelf with hundreds of books and magazines for students and teachers.
In addition to YA books, Philly Bookshelf provided books in Spanish and books for the lifeskills classes, so all of the students have available reading materials.
The counselor set up and decorated the bookshelf pictured at left. It’s been an absolute privilege to work with her.
Thanks to you, access to diverse and age appropriate reading materials is becoming a reality for students and teachers at Swenson.
