Carpentry students from Bossier Parish (La.) Technical School had an opportunity to serve their community and make a difference by building two public bookcases outside of a local parent center. The “Free Little Libraries” allow visitors to stop by and either pick up a book to read or leave books for others to read. The parent center staff believes students will really benefit from the project by increasing their literacy skills through reading the books that are available. The SkillsUSA students plan to continue working with the parent center to come up with new projects that serve the community.
