SST Inter-House
Free Library Bookshelf Design Competition

Contact your House Captains to register now!

Context
Little Free Library is a worldwide movement to offer free books housed in small containers to members of the local community. They are often attractively decorated to attract attention. The idea is for book lovers to place a book or two on the shelf left in a common place, and members of the community and in this case, the SST community, can browse, take one, and return at another time with a replacement.

Purpose
This competition encourages students to be involved in the design of our first Little Free Library bookshelf and to raise awareness of such a book exchange facility.

Students in teams of 2-5 from the same House are to come up with their own themes and designs that will
  • attract potential readers to the free library and
  • encourage reading and exchange of books

The Winning Design will be given up to $100 to decorate the bookshelf.
