Help Verner’s Library Reach Exemplary Status

Verner Elementary is an exceptional school with a thriving culture of literacy. The Verner Library is essential to our goal of developing life-long learners. An exemplary library consists of a collection with an average age less than ten years old and an average of fifteen books per student. Currently, our collection has an average age of 2001 and we need $75,000 to raise the age of our collection to exemplary level. With matching funds from a supporting organization, we seek to raise $37,500 by May 2020. With your help, we can make this goal a reality. Please consider donating to support the literacy efforts at Verner. The name of every donor of $100 or more will be included in a permanent display in Verner’s library. Please share this link with family and community members.
