LCHS is one of six locations in Luzerne County now home to a ‘Little Free Library.’ Members of Leaderships Wilkes-Barre’s team ‘Learning with Books: A Little Free Library Project’ turned old newspaper boxes into free community book exchanges. Students at the Career Technology Center of Lackawanna County helped the team freshen up the old newspaper boxes with a new look. Each box is filled with books for children and adults. The idea behind the little free library is for people to take a book or leave a book – whatever they choose. Team members say the little free libraries encourage reading and help bring communities together. In addition to LCHS’s Wilkes-Barre location, the little free libraries can be found at the Lands at Hillside Farms, Shavertown; Napoli’s Pizza, Pittston; Public Square, Wilkes-Barre; Quality Hill Park, Nanticoke and Nucleus Raw Foods, Luzerne.
