Two major things happened today with our Little Free Libraries. I began talks with a possible location for our 2nd library and our 2 libraries were delivered by Home Depot!
I have to say again that we went into this project with a lot of faith in our community and amazing things are happening. Here are a few recent things:
- Several students from other grades have come to tell me that they are cleaning out their home libraries to bring us books that they no longer need.
- Several people have brought in books to fill the libraries already.
- People donated money during the book fair which was almost enough to register both of our libraries. The 5th graders are about to each bring in $1, which will help us reach that goal. Our library numbers will be 5559 and 5560
- A student who wrote a persuasive letter was beaming when he found out that his letter had been received by the recipient.
- Home Depot #0129 continues to be a very generous donor to this project. They have built and donated both libraries and are now working with our art teacher to get supplies for painting the 2 libraries. They will also help us with the final supplies for installing both libraries. I can’t thank them enough for their generosity. They definitely have my future home improvement business!
