Little Free Library Literacy Project
Beta Alpha is honored to partner with the Little Free Library Project in Jacksonville, TX to promote literacy in our community. We have agreed to a stewardship for the Little Free Libraries located in Phase 1 and Phase 2 of Nichol's Green Park. Our service and contributions to this project make the world a better place.
Spread the word that we need books for our libraries. They can be new, but gently used are even better.
