Holiday Delivery of Animal Books at Local Schools

Prince William SPCA Gifts New Animal Books

December 20, 2018 – Woodbridge, VA – Prince William SPCA volunteers were making deliveries of new animal books just in time for the winter break. Earlier this year, twenty schools received Little Free Libraries as part of a donation from Prince William SPCA. Benton Middle School as well as Coles, Ellis, Henderson, Marshall, Montclair, Penn, and Rosa Parks Elementary Schools received book donations this week while the remaining 12 schools will receive a delivery over the next two weeks. Included in the donations were popular books such as Hachiko Waits, A Home for Dakota, Where the Red Fern Grows, Oh the Pets You Can Get, Charlotte’s Web, Before You Were Mine, To Kill A Mockingbird, and, of course, Dewey the Library Cat—one of the group’s favorite books to share. While the Prince William SPCA is partial to animal-themed books, many different genres can be found in the little libraries. This makes visiting the libraries a unique and always-changing experience for the entire family. The little libraries inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity by encouraging everyone to “take a book, share a book.”  In addition to the 20 little libraries at the schools, Prince William SPCA has also built a little library at each of the two local animal shelters.
