Little Free Library Has a New Home in the WBS Courtyard

Five people standing by little libraryA little free library has found a new home in the Windermere Boulevard courtyard, thanks to the Rotary Club of Amherst South who donated the library to the school. The little library will be used by students and classes who use the courtyard during nice weather. Students can borrow a book and when they are done, they return it.

"The gift of the Free Little Library will be a wonderful addition to our courtyard! We work hard to instill a love of reading so this gift will be well utilized," said Principal Julie Flanagan.

In early September, the little library was installed by members of the Rotary Club South. Completing the installation were Scott Marcin, club president; and Julie Ponkow and Sandy Nobel, two past presidents of the club. September is education and literacy month for the Rotary Club.

Windermere has an ongoing partnership with the Rotary Club South and they have donated equipment and improvements to the auditorium for the student musicals.

We have a strong partnership with the Rotary Club," said Mrs. Flanagan. "Over the years, they have donated generously to our Musical Theater Club. They have given us the funding to purchase a new sound system, portable microphones, as well as the musical scores and scripts. This year they are providing the funding to purchase a new spotlight - one that we have needed for many years. Our equipment is very old so this is truly a gift. We are incredibly grateful for the support of the Rotary Club and their partnership in supporting the students of Windermere."
