Mrs. LaMonda's Functional Academics class has been busy building "little free libraries." Through a grant recently won from the East Hampton Greater Education Foundation, Mrs. LaMonda's class, along with Mr. Hallman, have been busy cutting and assembling wood to create "libraries" that they will be placing around town. "The idea is to expand book availability throughout the far reaches of Springs," explained Mrs. LaMonda. "Our class hopes to have six of these libraries built and distributed by this summer." Mrs. LaMonda's students have been doing everything from using tools to cut and sand wood, and will soon stain and decorate the little libraries. Then, the class will be holding a book drive to help furnish the shelves with books. Mrs. LaMonda will also soon be looking for volunteers who would like to "host" one of these free libraries in their front yard! She hopes to locate these libraries in areas far from the school, perhaps near bus stops, so children can borrow books closer to home. Stay tuned for more information!
