NHN Grant helps Sand Hill Attendance Center offer Little Free Library Program

Children in the Sand Hill community now have access to free books at any time thanks to the Little Free Library Program initiated by Sand Hill Attendance Center teacher Ashley Roberts. The program aligns with the school’s educational values, as it offers accessible and free reading materials to people of all ages.

“Our nearest public library is a 20-minute drive, so the convenience of free books in our community is a great advantage,” said Roberts.

A $1,277.56 Neighbors Helping Neighbors Community Grant from Singing River Electric purchased two Little Free Libraries which are housed on the Sand Hill Attendance Center campus. There’s also a counter for each library to keep track of how many times the libraries are used.

“For the last three years, we’ve successfully run a Book of the Month program. The Little Free Library Program will allow us to not only promote literacy but also community involvement,” explains Roberts.
