Recycle a Ton in 2021! is Benton Middle School Tiger Library's successful community service recycling program.
The ability to pull off any type of community service project this year, during COVID, was a feat. To do it at a new middle school, on a new campus, with a new staff and students who had never stepped foot on this campus before this year, was unbelievable. This put the library as the center point, the gathering place, the hangout and the place with the answers. Fostering collaboration of our faculty and community is essential to the life of an exemplary library program.
This program was an opportunity to collaborate with classroom teachers, custodians, administration, students, faculty and community organizations, which was the whipped cream on top for a library program!
A school library planned this successful community service recycling program.
