For the Love of Reading at Davis

Davis Public School received the For the Love of Reading Grant through Indigo bookstores in May, 2012.  Davis P.S. received a total of $93,000 from the grant that can be used to purchase materials for the school’s learning commons (library).  Since May, we have purchased new furniture for the learning commons, 53 Kobo eReaders and several thousand dollars worth of books for school and classroom libraries.

I'm Mr. Wideen and I will be your librarian this year at Davis.  Help me create the best school library for you.  I have created an online survey found at and would like you to answer a few questions about your child’s interests to help me better understand which types of materials to purchase for the school library.  Please be honest when answering this survey so that I can purchase materials that fit the needs of the students and school.  Don’t forget to answer “why” if it is part of a question.  I’m looking forward to a great year with you.

Here is a short video presenting Davis Public School’s exciting involvement in the For the Love of Reading Grant with Indigo.
