Setting Students Up for Success with School Supplies

Learning is hard when you don’t have the basic tools.

As summer was winding down, a regular patron at Aloha Community Library asked Katie Patterson, youth services librarian, about resources to help families get school supplies. Patterson couldn’t find anything in Aloha and didn’t want to assume that patrons were able to travel to Hillsboro or Beaverton to access supplies. Instead, she took matters into her own hands and spearheaded a school supply pop-up shop that benefitted more than 140 local kids.
