Westview Little Free Library

Westview Little Free Library

You’ve probably heard of them before – the “Little Free Library.” It is a movement that started in 2009 of little houses that are placed in front yards and neighborhood entry points throughout the country (even the world!). Neighbors can come and check out books for free with the concept “take a book, return a book.”

As of September a Westview neighbor started her very own “Westview Little Free Library” on South Gordon Street at the corner of Ontario Avenue. A whole spectrum of rotating books can be found at the little library, which is a replica of the owner’s house. The children’s books have been especially popular, so bring the kids to come check out a book. If they write down their thoughts in the “Book Blurbs” the book fairy will even write them a personal response!

The project has been such a success that other neighbors plan to place Little Free Libraries at their houses across the neighborhood.

Youth STEAM Summer Camp Photos

The Youth Committee, in conjunction with the John Perdew Legacy Project, hosted a two week youth STEAM camp from July 21st through August 1st, 2014 to allow the children to develop real world skills through arts and science. As part of the STEAM camp (an acronym for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) the children worked with artist Ashley Dopson, listened to speakers talk about topics such as banking and finances, college and technical schools, music, tie tying, vegetable harvesting, and bicycle safety. At the end of the two week camp the children received free bicycles thanks to a generous donor.

Mellow Mushroom Contest

Westview Kids Enter Mellow Mushroom Contest

Mellow Mushroom recently announced an Instagram video contest. The grand prize is a 90-second shopping spree at Sports Authority (up to $2,000). To enter, you upload a 15-second video saying why you should win the prize.

Westview residents thought it would be a fun idea to get some of the neighborhood children together to star in a 15-second video for an opportunity to win the grand prize and get them some new sports equipment to play with. See what they came up with!
