North Branch School, Katrien Vance – Dollar Bill Bookmarks
The Dollar Bill Bookmark project came about during a brainstorming session of 5th-8th graders at North Branch School in Afton, Virginia. Creating bookmarks attached to dollar bills and inserting them into library books throughout Central Virginia will encourage and reward readers and library users. The students and their teacher, Katrien Vance, along with other teachers, will create 10 bookmarks each and place them in their favorite books at local libraries.
A small amount of the grant will be used for supplies and the rest will be turned into Dollar Bill Bookmarks. In the words of a North Branch student, “This a way to spread a smile and encourage people to read great books!”
