Mini libraries are the new thing “popping up” around Bethel Park! In three locations around Bethel, there are now mini library boxes.

Students, parents, and people alike are welcome to come and take a book! A free book to keep or return if you wish to keep spreading the reading fun.

If you want to keep spreading the love for reading, you can also drop off books to leave in the box for others to pick up and read.

You can thank Mrs. Pazuchanics from Lincoln Elementary and Elaine Volpe from the BP Public Library. It was their fun and innovative idea to create these mini libraries around Bethel.

In order to see that this project was created, they contacted Bethel teacher, Mr. Wells.

Mr. Wells is a tech teacher at Bethel Park and he with some of his students’ help created the small library boxes.

The pop up boxes, made of plywood and pine, took a little over a school year to make. Mr. Wells also had students lend a hand in creating these boxes.

It was a good, fun project for the kids. It wasn’t mandatory, but kids did want to volunteer and they got to build something for the community and give back to the community,” said Mr. Wells about his students and their efforts.  

You can find these boxes at the Bethel Park Milford Fire Station, on South Park Road at the South Hills Interfaith Movement, and at the Montour Trail near Washington Elementary School.

If you take a book from one, you will find a flyer on the inside listing all kinds of fun activities happening in our library.

There are books for everyone in the boxes! From Dr. Seuss for the kids to something for the parents! You never know what you may find in the pop up box!

I went to the mini library at SHIM on South Park Road and got my own copy of a book! I picked out The Book Thief, but there were many other great book choices available.

Make sure you pop in to check it out!
