Ship student starts Little Free Library
senior Kayla Morales brings a Little Free Library to the Shippensburg
trailhead. The Little Free Library is a nationwide free book exchange program that
aims to increase
access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
Morales installed the box
as part of an assignment from Dr. Laurie Cella, associate professor of English.
As part of Cella’s introduction to technical writing course, students are
tasked with solving a problem on or off campus.
“I was inspired by the
organization’s efforts in trying to instill a love of reading in neighborhoods
all over the world and I felt that reading was a great way to unify the
Shippensburg community,” Morales said.
Morales drafted inquiry
emails and proposals leading to local support and funding for the project from
the Shippensburg Rotary Club for the purchase of the little library, and received
book donations from the Friends of the Shippensburg Public Library.
The Little Free Library
provides a home for new and old books of all kinds. Stop by the Little Free
