District News & Updates
Little FREE Library Kiosks Installed at Local Parks
Sarah Lundell, a recent Oak Ridge High School graduate, has been busy designing, building, and installing three Little Free Libraries for our community. With help from the EDHCSD Parks Department, the libraries have been placed at Community Park, Murray Homestead Park, and Parkview Heights Park. 

These libraries encourage reading through free sharing of books. The El Dorado Hills Library will act as steward for the kiosks. Sarah worked on this project to earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouts. She drove fundraising, encouraged book donations from the community, and worked with multiple local organizations to complete her goal. For more information about Little Free Libraries, please visit https://littlefreelibrary.org/. Way to go, Sarah!
