Sharing Books

In Kiwi magazine, I read about a great way to share books and promote literacy in your hometown.  Little Free Library is a way to recycle your old books and even read some new ones.  You can order a waterproof structure, or better yet, build your own out of repurposed materials, and place books inside. Neighbors come and borrow books and even leave some of their own books.  If you're really ambitious, leave a notebook and pen in the structure for people to write their responses to each book.  Click here for information on how to promote literacy in your hometown and bring your neighbors together over a love of books!

Happy reading,

  1. What an interesting idea, Christine. I hope some parents and enterprising young students decide this would be a great community service project. I like seeing all of the issues of Scholastic Parent and Child that have published your articles. Good work! Would you like to post this success at the Showcase of Teaching and Learning?
