WMS Hosts Book Drive to Stock Little Free Libraries
The Little Free Libraries will provide books for readers of all ages to take and enjoy. The books are free, and when readers have finished, they can return the books and exchange them for new books to read.
To stock the libraries with plenty of options for all readers, the WMS students have been collecting books from their community during the past month. They have advertised the drive through posters, daily announcements and emails to teachers. Book donors receive a raffle ticket for every book they donate, and through daily drawings, they have a chance to win a variety of prizes donated largely by WMS staff. A grand prize raffle for various gift cards will be held following the conclusion of the book drive.
The community is encouraged to donate new and gently used books through March 16. The students hope to make the book drive an annual event to ensure the Little Free Libraries remain stocked with reading options for the Normandy and Clayton communities.
The following students have spearheaded the For the Love of Reading book drive:
