The Eagle Rock Elementary Education Foundation, a parent-led group affiliated to , has launched a fundraising campaign to house the school’s 20-year-old library in a new space adequate for the needs of the school’s growing student population.
The current library is too cramped for the school’s approximately 1,000 students, reports the Eastsider LA blog, quoting a parent as saying that the library can barely house a full class of 36 students and has no provisions for interactive educational resources and electronic games.
The foundation has applied for several grants, most notably a $50,000 grant from Clorox Company. But the school’s nomination for the grant requires the maximum number of votes possible from anyone 13 years old or more. (The more votes, the better.)
