Free supplies at teachers’ treasures language library



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Thursday, Teachers’ Treasures launched the Global Language Giving Library which will offer teachers free school and office supplies.

The Global Language Giving Library’s mission is to help teachers support the growing culturally diverse community in Marion County.

Selections for the library had been made through surveys and direct feedback in order to identify the kinds of books classrooms need to reflect the culture, language and backgrounds of students.

“The project grew from this need we were hearing from teachers. Teachers of all sorts, not just ESL or ENL teachers were encountering students who spoke languages outside of English from all around the world. We recognize that those teachers were asking for those books. We just knew that this was a project we needed to fulfill,” Hanna Yaeger Busch, Director of Community Engagement, said.

Thursday’s ribbon cutting is in advance of Hispanic heritage month.
