KENILWORTH, NJ – Before the school year ended, the Kenilworth Education Association Pride Committee sponsored a Free Little Library in the David Brearley Courtyard.

The Free Little Library is a national “take a book, leave a book” exchange set up in small wooden boxes throughout local communities.

“Many students were able to choose books that they will use for their summer reading,” Kenilworth Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini said.

The Free Little Library intents to build the community through a love of reading and foster similar book exchanges around the world. There are 50,000 Free Little Libraries in the United States alone, but more exist in 70 countries around the world.

“Ms. Warchol would like to thank Mrs. Marsili, Mr. Lepore, and Drew Vanderzee for making this initiative possible,” Tramaglini said. “This project was funded by the Kenilworth Education Association Pride Committee.”
