STATESBORO, Ga. (WSAV) – One group at Georgia Southern University is encouraging more students to read outside of the classroom. They hope the tiny library project, will do just that.
The small structure sits outside of the Newton building and holds dozens of free books. It was built as a service project by Sigma Tau Delta, a chapter of the National English Honors Society.
The president of the group Brady Gwynn, said the library is a way for students to pass along their favorite read to peers. It’s also a way to strike up a conversation with someone you might have never met.
“We want you to be involved with each other, and this gives students a chance to share their favorite books with each other along the way. They can take one as they go to class, they can drop one off, and it just makes it a little more personalized,” Gwynn said.
Gwynn also said the group has no plans to take the tiny library down. And anybody can donate to it, by just placing a book inside.
