GHS club installs library at Wilshire Trails Park
By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville High School FCCLA (Family Career and Community Leaders of America) Club recently erected a library at the playground at Wilshire Trails Park.
It contains more than 400 books and was constructed to resemble a miniature house. Not all the books will be in there at once, however. Check-out procedure is by the honor system. The books are donations from the public.
"The books are free and can be taken home," according to Whittney McPherson, the FCCLA Faculty Advisor. "We will be refilling the library as needed and donations of books would be very helpful."
McPherson said they can use children's books from "storybooks to young adult" and donations can be made to GHS or can be placed directly into the library.
"We began the project in September and completed it last Thursday," she added.
Darrell Lucas provided the "legs" on which the structure sits and some of the tools used to construct it, Steve Lawhorne made the plaque, and Donna Miller provided additional tools.
