The students at the Doris Miller Elementary School won't recognize their library when they return to school next fall.

The Tierrasanta school is one of a handful to get a library makeover - a dream come true in this era of tight budgets.

"We should have couches, said third grade student Rebecca Sperry. "So like instead of seats we should have comfy chairs."

Target Stores and the Heart of America Foundation have teamed up to put in new carpeting, furniture and stock the library with 2,000 new books.

Students will get a say in how the space will be designed. Each has a vision of his/her own dream library.

"I would make it like purple, red, blue, and that kind of colors, the cool yet bold kind of colors," said second grader Travis Scott.

Only 32 schools across the U.S. are getting the library makeover.
