Wayland Union High School National Honor Society students have been busy participating in a service project that benefits our entire community. NHS students visited Little Free Libraries throughout the district to refresh them. Students weeded books that were out of date or in poor condition, straightened up the books to make the libraries more inviting, and added new books to the libraries.
The Little Free Libraries throughout the district are part of the Building a Community of Readers Project, started in 2018, spearheaded by Teresa Fulk, Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services as a way to increase access to books for students in our community. Since then, multiple businesses, agencies, and individuals, including the United Way of Allegan County, have partnered to build, install, and host the libraries. The project started with one little free library located within district boundaries and has now expanded to thirty.
Thank you to Dr. Linda Bensyl and Mr. Chris Jasinski, NHS Advisors, and the Wayland Union High School National Honor Society students for providing this service to the community.
