One of our outstanding pantry volunteers (and expert carpenter), Jay Rogers, generously donated a beautifully-crafted, well-loved dollhouse to the Center. After a bit of creative repurposing, we're excited to announce that we've found the perfect use for it.
What had been a simple dollhouse has transformed into a new home for books from our friends at the Cambridge Public Library. Thanks to both Jay and CPL, the Center is now able to offer our community safer and easier access to library books - an invaluable resource as we continue to push through the final stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We're happy to have Nyrah, one of the Center's students, as our first library patron. We want to invite all of our community members to follow Nyrah's lead - feel free to stop by to pick up a book (or two) anytime! Our little library is located at the back of the Center (by our gymnasium doors), on the picnic benches in front of the Coast Community Fridge.
Jay's also known for his work as a carpenter and has extended his generosity by offering to help build a sliding door to protect the books from the elements. To learn more about the artistic carpentry of Jay Rogers, visit his website.
