Brooke Elementary, Title I school in East Austin; we have 90% low socio-economic students. We are losing students to high cost of living and gentrification. One of the last things parents are able to afford are books.

More Info

We have 253 students PreK through 5th grade.  Our population is dwindling and most families are identified as low socio-economic status.  The families are trying to pay rent which has increased or high taxes on homes in an area of East Austin that is being overtaken by the high cost of living and gentrification.  Families are trying to make ends meet and one of the last things on their mind is to purchase books.  Many of our families live south across the river in apartment complexes and are bussed in to the school.  They have limited access to a library close by.  We would like to give each child for the spring and summer break at least 2-5 books of good quality and interest. We hope to be able to give them more.  We would like to partner with the apartment complex management and provide a small library for children to exchange books during the remainder of the year.  We have 3 apartment complexes the majority of our children come from.
