Students and parents in the High Plains community are welcome to "Take a book, Return a book" from the Little Free Library.
This helps families have 24/7 access to books all year round!
One of the most successful ways to improve the reading achievement of children is to increase their access to books, especially at home (McGill-Franzen & Allington, 2009).
Little Free Libraries play an essential role by providing
24/7 access to books (and encouraging a love of reading!)
in areas where books are scarce.
The Little Free Library belongs to the whole community - students, parents, neighbors, friends, and people we don't even know yet! All of us can help by keeping this collection organized and stocked with current, fun reading material.
- Donate books
- Sort books by type (Picture, Chapter, and Nonfiction)
- Display books you love
- Remove damaged books
- Tell everyone about it
Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small book exchanges number 36,000 around the world in 70 countries.
I knew I wanted to join the movement to share books, bring people together, and create a community of readers.
On a mission, I persuaded The Gazette in Colorado Springs to donate an old newspaper distribution center sitting in their warehouse. A fresh coat of paint and Timber artwork transformed and repurposed it as a Little Free Library at High Plains!
High Plains Elementary School, an inclusive, culturally-diverse neighborhood school, will develop future-ready citizens of knowledge, character, and action by equipping, inspiring, and empowering all students to be confident, global-minded leaders within a safe, socially and emotionally healthy, personalized learning environment.
