Madelyn Buzza earns 2018 Silver Award


Madelyn discovered that her town of Mapleton, and the two surrounding towns of Chapman and Castle Hill, did not have a local library. Residents would have to travel ten miles to another town’s library, and pay a non-resident fee, in order to be able to have access to books.

With a love of reading herself, Madelyn did not find this acceptable, so she set off to build and install three Little Free Libraries, a nationally known organization for creating opportunities to share books and reading. She placed them in busy areas throughout town where families, children and senior citizens, can take a book, and leave a book.

Madelyn’s project is a wonderful way to keep books that still have a lot of life out of the garbage, and spread the joy of reading for years to come.
