What Does A Living Library Mean To You ?

A Living Library Farm
  • What do you like about A Living Library ?
  • What is your favorite thing to do in A Living Library  ?
  • Do you think the work A Living Library does is good for the environment and students ?
 

These were some of the questions I asked to a group of enthusiastic middle school students working at the OMI / Excelsior Living Library & Think Park, between San Miguel Early Education School and James Denman Middle School, during one of the after school sessions of A.L.L. Green Futures Paid Internship Program. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, these A.L.L. ECO-Stewards engage in STEAM + Literacy, get their hands dirty digging up soil, sowing seeds, identifying weeds, working in the greenhouse, cooking, helping mentor younger students, making art from recycled materials, or just having fun with their friends.
