Propelled to Read Book Project

Propelled To Read is a project created by 9th seminar Independent Study at Propel Braddock Hills High School. Our project came about from a brainstorm session and an article. A student in our class was interested in creating a library of some sorts and another student was interesting in studying ethics. All the books used in this library were donated by students and teachers in our high school. We had an unique way to collect the books for our project. We made it a contest between advisories (homerooms) and the result was tremendous. We collected over 1300 books for our project. We have scanned and organized our books using to create an easily searchable database.The containers that hold our books come from a generous donation from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Our class cleaned a painted these newspaper dispensers to create our miniature libraries.We are very excited to offer this easy accessible books to our community. Propelled to Read Libraries never close and are never locked. They run on the honor system.
