I am a teacher at the Bernalillo County Juvenile Detention Center. We serve 6th-12th grade pre-adjudicated students. We have a small library, but it currently has mostly YA fantasy and mystery novels. We are looking to expand our holdings of non-fiction, historical, and culturally relevant books for our students to check out.
I currently get the bulk of my donations through out of state friends and family. The teachers have pulled together a ranked list of the books we'd like to purchase and have solicited requests from the students as well.
