At my school, there are 900 students in a K-8 setting, about half elementary and half middle school. We have multiple copies of most of these titles so I think that these totals include all copies. Extra copies of popular books were donated from our PTO-sponsored bookfairs as the year went on and some titles were used with book clubs and Battle of the Books programs.
