Thank you so much to all the people who helped get a full wishlist of books on the way to this wonderful school.  If you’ve just arrived, please consider helping our other schools in need of books!  Let’s get more kids excited to read.  Also please follow us on Twitter or Facebook - we have lots more empty shelves to fill, coming soon.


Downsville Charter School is a small school in Downsville, Louisiana. We are in the northern part of the state, so we are not Cajuns nor do we have alligators in our back yards! We live in the piney hills close to Lake D’Arbonne. Our school is a K-12 with an enrollment of about 330 students. Our students participate in basketball, baseball, softball, and tennis. Our clubs include Beta Club, FBLA, FCA, FCCLA, FFA, 4-H, and Student Council. Our students love to read in their spare time.  Our library operates on very limited funds due to the fact we are in a rural parish with few businesses. Our needs always outweigh our funds. Most of our books are really old. I would love to be able to update our collection.
