Students build free mini library at LSC-Kingwood campus
Loading Image...
The English Department at Lone Star College-Kingwood had tons of books with no home. The English and Engineering departments worked together to construct the Little Free Library on campus. This mini library is located on the patio of the Science Instructional Building.
The new library has a motto: “take a book, leave a book.”
English students shared their ideas with the engineering graphics class in an online community group, who, in turn, researched designs, sketched preliminary concepts, and created a plan in CAD. Doug Turner served as their technician, using their drawings to build the library.
The Little Free Library committee used a $500 mini-grant to pay for building supplies such as plywood, edging, hardware, plexiglass, posts, varnish, shelving, roof shingles, air vents, fan, solar panel, battery, chalkboard, guestbook, and decor. It has a chalkboard, shelves with air vents, an air roof and solar panel mount with the college logo, an attic shelf to hold batteries, fans & wires. It also has a cup filled with affirmations that students can take on their way to class.
The engineering/design team members are Catherine Thomas, Bruno Samame, Elmer Moran, Garrett Stevens, Griffin Billings, Corbin Whitaker, and Blake Rossen.
Starting in the fall, the college will host monthly themed events for various topics.
The Little Free Library at LSC-Kingwood is open to employees, students, and the community.
For more information, to suggest themes, or donate books, email Sampada.Dalvi@LoneStar.edu.
