Welcome to Union High School
Union High School received a grant from bestselling author James Patterson to support its school library. In addition, Scholastic Reading Club will match each dollar of Patterson’s donation with “bonus points” that teachers can use to acquire books and other materials for their classrooms. Union High School was selected among thousands of applications for funding grants.
In the first-ever partnership of its kind, Patterson joined forces with Scholastic Reading Club to administer funding applications to their network of 62,000 schools and 800,000 teachers. Schools entering were asked to share the story of their school library, including past efforts to make improvements and “great ideas to help create a brighter future.” Patterson personally read and selected the winning recipients of the grants. Based on past winners, school libraries across the country have been using this funding to purchase new books, add bookshelves, make improvements to their catalog systems, and expand their programing.
Sarah Williams, grade 12, won the Enthusiastic Reader award from the New Jersey Association of School Librarians. She was honored at a luncheon in November.
Enthusiastic Reader Awards are presented to students who exhibit an enthusiasm for reading, sharing books, using books for a variety of purposes, reading independently on a voluntary basis, and using school and/or public libraries.
