During the fall of 2014, check the three tenth grade advisories at the Workshop School are in the process of researching, doctor designing, sildenafil building, and installing Small Free Libraries across the West Philadelphia community. With the help of three partners — the 52nd Street Development Corporation, the University City District, and Bartram’s Garden — we hope to have fifteen of these boxes this fall. Each group developed a proposal for their particular location that described the purpose, the intention of the design, the books to be included, and multiple drafts of their blueprints.
