Laveen has added three “Free Little Libraries” to their campus this year. The libraries are located just outside the classroom buildings and are filled with books specific to a grade level band: PK-2, 3-5, and 6-8. These libraries will encourage and support literacy across all grade levels.
All three libraries are filled with books donated by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library. Laveen School was the recipient of a “book storm” grant which provided the books for the little libraries as well as other books for classroom libraries.
Community volunteer, Daniel Magos, built the three house-shaped cases over the summer. They were installed just before the start of school.
