Idea for Little Free Library Hutches
My name is Tanner Jessel
I live in Parkridge Neighborhood in East Knoxville.
Ever hear of little Free Libraries?
They’re little hutches where people can "take a book/leave a book."
In our neighborhood, we tried to set one up stocked with children’s books.
Sadly, along with assaults from the weather, it was brutally vandalized.
On a walk with my dog in downtown Knoxville, I noticed an empty Metropulse box and had an idea: collect the boxes and transform them into little free library hutches for Knoxville.
I know these empty boxes sadden a lot of people who miss the Metropulse.
I was hoping we could convert these sad reminders into a source of hope and optimism for literacy in Knoxville.
Am I correct to assume that these boxes are still the property of Scripps?
If so, might we organize to collect them and convert them into little free library hutches?
Please let me know. I think this could be a great opportunity for Scripps to do some good and generate some positive sentiment concerning the recent events.
