Lending library pops up in Kennett to aid childhood literacy

KENNETT SQUARE—Arts Holding Hands and Hearts (AHHAH) has partnered with the Kennett Library in the expansion of AHHAH’s PULL (Pop Up Lending Library) Campaign. 

About 20 outdoor PULL Stations will "pop up"  throughout Kennett Square during the next several weeks. These PULL stations were constructed by seniors at Kendal and Crosslands and students at Unionville High School, Octorara High School and a boy scout earning his Eagle Status worked with fifth graders at Upland Country Day School in building the boxes. 

The project was made possible through a grant from the Longwood Rotary Club. Youth groups and well-known artists have been painting the boxes. Six of the boxes built by students were on display at the Student Art Show on the Square. The Finance Cares Committee of the Chester County Hospital is hosting a Book Drive during the month of April to support the PULL campaign. These books will help to fill the new PULL Stations.

On Saturday, April 27, at 9 a.m., AHHAH is having their Inaugural 5K/1K Walk Run Roll at Anson B. Nixon Park, 405 North Walnut Road, Kennett Square. This race is kicking off the Kennett YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, 11am to 2 p.m. The race fees are $25 5K/1K Run, Walk, Roll (pre-registered). $30 morning of, $5 for children 8-under.
