This project enabled the Demopolis Public Library to buy educational resources that helped us meet the needs of children, teens and adults in our community. We used funds to purchase test preparations books for the GED, ACT, GRE, and ASVAB Military Exam. We also purchased a set of DVD’s that help students with study skills and test taking skills. We purchased books that helped our pre-school and school aged children develop early literacy skills. We were able to purchase some non-fiction common core books for children in grades K-8. Having access to and reading non fiction books helps students develop their background knowledge, which accounts for as much as 33% in student achievement. We also purchased eBooks and digital audiobooks for children and adults.
