Clark Middle School Promotes Literacy with Frisco ISD’s First Little Free Library

Clark Little Free LibraryClark Middle School celebrated the installation of a Little Free Library on Wednesday, September 17 during a ribbon cutting ceremony outside the school.

The free book exchange, which contains titles donated by students, parents and staff, is open to the whole community, including neighbors and families without children at Clark. The goal is to promote literacy and love of reading among people of all ages.

The idea for the Little Free Library is to “take a book, return a book” and everyone is invited to participate. The library can be found attached to a bike rack along the east side of the school, located at 4600 Colby Drive in Frisco.  

"The Little Free Library provides a venue for the entire community to share books with each other," said Clark Librarian Kimberly Taber. "It is located close to the track so that people who come and use the fields can stop by and get a book. I can’t think of a better way to bring communities together than by sharing their favorite books with their neighbors and friends."

The Clark PTA purchased the library from the Little Free Library Foundation and the base was built and installed by Taber's husband and father. It will be maintained by the Friends of the Library Club, a group of Clark students who assist with library activities.  

“We wanted something that wouldn’t just impact the school, but would impact the whole community,” said Clark PTA President Stacey Stanislav.
