Just like opening a birthday gift, community-based little libraries offer a new treasure every time it’s opened.
Gateway Pointe Gators will get to share in that excitement each year, thanks to the Impact Library Program. The organization selected Gateway Pointe to receive a free little library to promote reading and community sharing. Only one out of 100 groups or individuals are selected for the free library book-sharing box.
Gateway Pointe media specialist teacher Trisha Wright nominated the school and shared what the school plans: “We plan to have our library box in the front of campus for students and the community to share in our love for reading.”
The Impact Library Program will also donate 100 new books from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
“I have been wanting to incorporate a little free library at Gateway Pointe and being selected as a grantee has set the wheels in motion,” says Wright.
The school plans to have the library installed sometime after summer.
Once its installed, the school will complete a library registration form to be added to the world map of little library boxes around the world.
