The Dallas Public Library is collecting children’s books to help restock the school library of Donald T. Shields Elementary. The school’s library was destroyed during the recent tornadoes and they need help to restock the shelves.

We’ve set up a container next to our Little Free Library at the Edgemere intersection for trail users to donate books. The library needs any new or gently used children’s books on any topic.

Please help us support this library imitative by leaving any pre-K to 5th grade books in the container beneath our Little Free Library. We are collecting books this week and weekend and will deliver to the library next week!

We are excited to announce that our brick campaign will be underway soon! These bricks will replace the previous pavers between Edgemere and Ricks, and St. Jude’s and Hillcrest. They make a great holiday present!
