Glebe Little Free Library Cabinet

Encourage your child’s reading by masking up and visiting the Glebe Little Free Library Cabinet, outside the front door entrance to Glebe. New books have been added, and thanks to Courtney Markle’s work, they have been organized and shelved to help your reader make a great choice. If you have elementary student appropriate books to donate, please email Courtney Markle. Due to Covid guidelines, please do not put books on the shelf. Happy reading!

Project Headphones: Headphones are an essential item to make virtual learning a successful experience for all APS families. However, headphones are by far the most expensive item on supply lists spanning all grades. Project Headphones’ mission is to ensure that ALL APS students have access to this essential item.
