Honor boxes’ second life

Posted

A member of Leadership Wilkes-Barre converting newsboxes donated by the Times Leader for use as free libraries. The six donated boxes were repainted and placed in front of businesses as part of the Pennsylvania group’s “Learning With Books: A Little Free Library Project.” People can take a book or leave a book. In effect, the converted honor boxes continue the mission of newspapers to advance reading, said Leadership Wilkes-Barre group leader Megan Filak.
