Students, parents, staff, and visitors
to our school see what looks like a
'red phone booth' near the front entrance. This is our "Little Free
Library", and we would love for everyone to stop, browse, and take a
book to read. The concept behind little free libraries is to
provide a place where anyone can stop by and pick up a book (or two) to
read and enjoy. All books are free and don't have to be returned. It's
a way to share great books with our community and to promote reading
that have been discarded from the school library will be placed in the
free library, and students will be encouraged to take a book home for
themselves or for a younger sibling. Anyone in our community can browse the books and take one. You can keep these books or
return them for others to enjoy. It will be a 'book swap that never
ends'. We also encourage anyone in the community to donate books to our
free library. Books can be left with Bronte Tatum in the school
library. We are looking for a variety of books in good condition at all
reading and interest levels from preschool to adult.
Little Free Library is a permanent fixture at RCMS and was made possible through Book Fair profit
and a generous donation by the PTO. Please join RCMS as we promote
literacy by getting free books to kids who need them. Little Free
Libraries are located all over the world. To learn more about them,
