Students that participated in the 21st CCLC Summer EdVentures Program in June at Centre Middle School created the “CMS Community Library” that is now located in the foyer of the school. STEM Art Teacher, Deanna Patterson, worked with the 25 or so students on the project over a week-long period. Donated books have been placed in the “library” and it is ready for use. The community is invited to drop by the school to take a book or share a book.
How Does The “CMS Community Library” Work?
The CMS Community Library offers a way to share good things to read—favorite books from your childhood or books you would recommend to friends; books that teach, intrigue and engage you. All of us can help by keeping this collection stocked with good reading material.
Whose library is this?
It belongs to everybody (mainly adults in this case since we have an entire library for our students) — neighbors, friends, and people we don’t even know yet. Anyone can use it. That’s why we want to take care of it.
Take a book. If you see something you would like to read, take it. Look inside and see who gave it; who else has read it.
Share it. Return it to the CMS Community Library or pass it on to a friend.
Give books. Leave notes in them. Be a friend of all libraries by helping any way you can. Pay it Forward!
We support reading for children, literacy for adults, and libraries around the world.
