A local school is continuing to share their love of reading with the community.
With the launch of its tiny library initiative, Mills Haven Elementary is taking their commitment to lifelong literacy to a whole new level.
A weatherproof box is located outside the school and filled with donated books. Community members are invited to take a book they are interested in and in return, leave a book they no longer need.
“Our schools are dedicated to developing important early literacy skills,” said Kaye Schindeler, the principal at Mills Haven Elementary. “We believe a passion for reading should be promoted and nurtured for people regardless of age. Having our own community library allows us to share the joys of reading far beyond the walls of our school.”
Spearheaded by Cherylynne Horbachewsky, a staff member at the school, the tiny library is meant to create a space where the community can come together through their love of books.
School council chair Becky Mitchel and her family installed the little library on Sunday (August 27).
