Mrs. Hartman and I went to the Bell Socialization Shelter on East Market Street one night to drop off our donation of books. When I went we got all the books in and put them down. All the girls came and got books. Mrs. Centeno read a book to a little boy. I read a book to three little girls. One of the young toddler girls was throwing books at us to play with them. We started to put them in the bookshelf and then the bookshelf got full so we had to put the rest of the books on another bookshelf there. That was the visit to the Bell Socialization Shelter.
The Lehman Center is a place that helps kids that need a break from their parents. The kids think the break is vacation from their mom and dad. It is a place where kids 6 and under can go. The Lehman Center gives kids three meals a day, a place to play with toys and books. The Lehman Center gives kids a chance to interact with more kids so it can be better for themselves.
The Lehman Center needs volunteers 14 and up. There are a lot of things for kids to do it must be fun.
When they came to collect the books they told us all about what they do and where they are located on West Market Street in York, PA. That's what we learned about The Lehman Center.

A Prowler Reporter from Central York High School came in to talk about Project Book Giving. She told us a little bit about the prowler paper. It's the High School paper. She interviewed some students. She talked about the different newspaper jobs. She told a little bit of her story and how she got to the newspaper. She watched our reading videos. She answered all of our questions too! When the paper with our article was printed, she brought in some of the copies of the Prowler Paper. That's what happened when the Prowler Reporter came in!

At the PAWS meeting, we uncovered the LFL and some of our students spoke and told people about the Little Free Library. When we went to uncover the library, all of the people at the PAWS meeting drummed for us, including the Central York Middle School Jazz Band. Everybody cheered and was like "AWESOME!" when they saw it. It made us feel good. Then we opened the LFL and people started using it. All the books ran out pretty fast because people were forgetting to exchange a book when they take a book! Then we went on the announcements and reminded everybody to exchange books if they want to take a book.
