NHR Staff Help Build Book Box for Scantlebury Park

Two weeks ago NHR’s Executive Director, Kirsten Levinsohn, and Book Bank Director, Victoria Smith, joined other volunteers at the Help Your Shelves project Build Day, where they constructed a new Help Your Shelf book bin for Scantlebury Park! Check out photos from the build day below, and read more about the project from The Arts Paper and The New Haven Independent!

The Help Your Shelves project is a partnership between New Haven Reads, Make Haven, and the New Haven Land Trust which will bring book boxes—similar to Little Free Libraries—to six New Haven neighborhoods early this summer. To apply for a Help Your Shelf in your neighborhood or learn how to donate, visit MakeHaven’s website.
