El Rincon has created a Free Lending Library for the student community. The library offers books for grades TK through 5 to encourage all students to read more books. Like the Free Little Libraries it is modeled after, it will be an ‘on your honor’ system where students can borrow a book and return it, or donate a different book to the library. The hope is that students will have a wider variety of books to read to encourage more home reading.
The library is 100% volunteer and donation driven. Parents at the school donated bookshelves and more than 100 books to start the library. To donate books to the Reading Rockets Free Lending Library, please bring books to the El Rincon school office or contact Kathy Macaraeg at [email protected].
