QACPS and County Parks Partner to Promote Literacy and Lifelong Learning
Thanks to the craftsmanship of Queen Anne’s County High School students and a new partnership between Queen Anne’s County Public Schools and the County Department of Parks and Recreation, children of all ages will have books to read and greater access to libraries in their communities.
The Little Free Library Project of Queen Anne's County is a collaborative effort to increase literacy in the parks. Children can get outside and read at county parks, and give-a-book or take-a-book home to read. The goal is to inspire a love of reading in youth by increasing access to books within county parks to promote literacy and develop lifelong learners.
Queen Anne’s County High School carpentry students designed and built the Little Libraries and National Honor Society students will install them to hold books for sharing at Church Hill Park, Sudlersville Park, and Ewing Park. Students will install the first Little Free Library on Tuesday at Church Hill Park.
