Students as young as 4 can access this little library on Highland Elementary School’s campus.

Highland Elementary School

Location: Highland Elementary School, Columbia Heights

“I think having little libraries where students can access engaging current novels [and] books is a fantastic thing. If we want students to read more, then we need to make sure students have access to the type of books they want to read. Reading should not be an obstacle.” –Columbia Heights High School English Teacher Ms. Jacquelene Bayless, who helps head #HylandersRead, where a designated book of the month is given to students to read (check the cart in the English hallway for a new title every month!)
