A More Perfect Union NEH Grant



Two Randolph Middle School sixth grade students shared stories from the We the People Bookshelf "A More Perfect Union" with Olsburg Elementary students.

The girls made posters that showed the main points in three of the books the library received as a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. They encouraged the younger students to read these books.


“A More Perfect Union” is the seventh We the People Bookshelf program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The National Endowment for the Humanities is proud to offer this program in cooperation with the American Library Association.

The We the People Bookshelf is a set of classic books for young readers from Kindergarten through high school.
Each year NEH identifies a theme important to the nation's heritage and selects books that embody that theme. This collection of theme-related books is the Bookshelf. In addition to introducing young readers to good literature, the Bookshelf promotes understanding of abstract or general ideas through the power of particular stories.
