If you spend any time in the Jaharis student lounge you may have noticed the latest addition to the Friedman School: The Friedman Community Library. This book-sharing opportunity operates a lot like a Little Free Library. Users are welcome to take books as they please and are invited to contribute material too. While the current selection consists primarily of content related to Friedman School disciplines, the library welcomes contributions from other areas of study as well.
The Friedman Community Library is meant to be a self-maintained space for students, staff, and faculty to find reading material related or unrelated to their work and studies. Once we return to campus, I encourage you to take out a book that is new to you and expand your learning!
The Friedman Community Library is a project of the Friedman Service Scholars group, a new student club that brings civically engaged students together to promote a culture of service at the Friedman School. The Service Scholars organize volunteer opportunities, collaborate with community organizations, campaign for food justice issues, and implement projects to engage the student body. Please consider joining the Friedman Service Scholars if you have a passion for civic engagement and community service.
