Beach Town Libraries:
Come on this amazing journey with 12-year-old Jessie who has struggled with dyslexia as he attempts to bring the joy of books into the hands of other children and adults alike, by installing "little free libraries" along the coastal towns along 30-A in the Florida Panhandle. Here's Jessie in his own words...  


Hi, I'm Jessie Hammack, I'm 12 years old.  Since I'm dyslexic and in school, I was underestimated a lot.   It drives me to build Beach Town Libraries and my hero Thomas Jefferson inspired me with his books and writings also.

Beach Town Libraries: I hope to spread knowledge to the people of 30A. I'm going to throw in 50 of my personal books into the library.   I hope for the Beach Town Libraries to be visited by all age's.  I would like to make the Beach Town Libraries free . This is going to provide people with a place to check out a book and return it or leave a book if they choose.   In order to make this happen, I have created this page to help with the main costs of books and the actual library itself.
I would love to get this library project up and running by June!!! To make this happen please donate here.
