Bookraiser for Mrs. Ann’s Book Club at Encore Academy

Encore Academy does NOT have a library, so they are building their own library of books! In the Fall of 2018 Ann Tuennerman started a book club for Encore students to self select and read their own books.

“Our library currently has 150 books which have been purchased by myself or friends and family. Our library is being built with student input and has a wide variety of books including Manga, Graphic Novels, LGBTQ themes, African American writers and protagonists and books in Spanish,” says Ann.

Please take a minute and see if you have a used book in good condition that could benefit Encore Learning Academy students. They are looking for classic works of literature, science fiction, graphic novels, manga, and great kid’s books for 4-8th grades!

What was your favorite book as a kid?

The book drive is ongoing through the end of August – please bring book donations to the Glitter Box during store hours and we will get them to Mrs. Ann and the Encore Learning Academy students!

Summer store hours: Friday – Monday | 11am – 6pm, Closed July 8th – August 9th.

One thought on “Bookraiser for Mrs. Ann’s Book Club at Encore Academy

  1. My children attended Encore in 2014 and left in 2016. One of the reasons we changed schools is the absence of a library. It’s 3 years later and the “library” has 150 books? With some VERY adult themes for elementary students? Articles like this one is confirmation that leaving years ago was the BEST decision for my children. We thank God daily we left Encore Academy.
