P.S 159Q "Little Free Library"

As our community continues to grow and change we are always looking for new ways to build partnerships.  In 1995 Councilman Michael Abel awarded a grant of $45,000 to build a reading garden in the school yard.  The garden is a 60 by 40 plot, which is fenced in, features benches, picnic-style tables, game tables and a stage. 

Recently, Eagle ScoutMatthew Donoghue, built a Remote Control Car track in the area for our student RC Club to have a place to race their cars.  Adding a Little Library to the area would be another way to enhance the reading garden area. 

It would be a place for students, parents and community members to share books with one another.  We are trying to bring new life into an area of the yard that is often overlooked.

Thank you for your support !
