Reading Resource Center
With thousands of books to choose, students are learning that reading doesn’t have to be a chore. D.C. Creative Writing Workshop members have found that reading can actually be fun! Students can choose any selection from the Workshop’s library, including a variety of popular children’s books, as well as biographies, sports books, and young adult novels. There is no time limit for borrowed books. Each child keeps a book for as long as necessary to enjoy it fully. Then, after finishing a book, the student can return it in trade for a new one. At the end of the school year, each participant in the after-school clubs may choose one book to keep permanently. Because the students at Hart are currently without a school library, the Reading Resource Center serves a vital function in promoting and improving literacy for these children.
