The residents of Alma have a new place to find books. AES third grade teacher Emily Hess and the Alma Elementary Book Club decided to build a Little Library. It is located on Ohio St. between the parking lot and the high school. “We live in an area where books are hard to access without transportation,” Hess said. It offers a few more choices than what there is at the public library. Hess hopes the Little Library will help build community and show that we place value on literacy.
