A recent EAST project is designed to stress the importance of reading and ensure that the community has easy access to books. To accomplish both, EAST created a portable library that is open to the community. The library is located at the corner of Lodge Street and South Jackson Street by the Greater Harvest Church.

The students partnered with Mayor Parnell Vann and the City of Magnolia to plan the project, but S & S Home Center donated the wood and materials needed to build the library. Students in agriculture classes did the actual construction.

The EAST students then hosted a book drive, receiving different genres of books for all ages. Within two weeks, 767 books were donated.

It’s free of charge to borrow books, and residents are free to donate them as well.
