When five kids from Lindenwold's Elementary School #4 collaborated on a letter, asking me for a Little Free Library, I JUMPED at the chance to make it happen. I called up a bunch of my friends who helped me plan and create the box.
Nancy Bragg painted the box and invited The Courier Post to cover the ribbon-cutting. Lindenwold High School Students helped transport and set up for a book fair featuring 1,200 free books. How great that the story got picked up by AP News and US News and World Report!
So excited to have Camden County College partnering with BookSmiles to be a permanent collection station. I want to give a big thanks to President Donald Borden, a voracious reader, for being so supportive.
The College has an education program for future teachers. We look forward to supporting them by providing them with tons of kid's books. We also hope to involve more colleges and universities in the sourcing, sorting, and distribution process.
Drop your donations off at Wolverton Library and Halpern Hall, lower level at the elevators. We need books for infants all the way to 6th graders. Help kids who have few, if any, books build libraries in their homes!
