Problem: Many of our students don’t have access to literature for fun. Our school population is approximately 90% poverty rate. 100% of our student population receives free lunch.

Objective: Our students need to read for fun.

A team of educators at Pinellas Park Middle School created a little free book spot/little free library to go at the corner of 68th Street and 68th Avenue (Pinellas Park, FL) on the way to Rawlings Elementary and Pinellas Park Middle Schools.
