Some Knox County students kicked off their summer break making sure people in their community have access to a good book.
Fifth graders at Hardin Valley Elementary School designed, built and installed what’s called a legacy project.
The entire idea is based on using STEM lessons in real life.
The students said since Hardin Valley doesn’t have a library these little libraries are needed to make sure everyone has access to a book for summer reading.
Each fifth-grade class designed, built and selected the location for their library.
They utilized GIS (geographic information system) to find the best locations to reach the most members of the community.
