For the past semester, pre-kindergarten students at Two Rivers Public Charter School worked on building five “Little Free Libraries” for the Ward 6C, north of H Street community. Their expedition began when ANC6 Commissioner Scott Price asked Two Rivers, “Some people don’t live close to a library. How can we build/create something to help them get books in their neighborhood?”

In response to this problem, pre-kindergarten students designed a solution. They met with experts who could help them with their project and toured the construction sites. With funding from the ANC6C, these pre-kindergarten students were able to finish all five of the “Little Free Libraries” by the end of the year. 

Earlier this week, the school held an unveiling ceremony at one of the library locations, where the students shared their experiences about partnering with the ANC6C to solve a real-world problem.
