BCMAC

Beaver County Marcellus Awareness Community (BCMAC) is excited to announce a Free Little Library program! Their goal is to construct book-sharing boxes without the use of plastics. These boxes will be open seven days a week, 24 hours a day and are freely accessible to all, removing barriers to book access. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share!

BCMAC believes that children and young people deserve access to high-quality, age-appropriate education about the environment in order to thrive in the world they’re growing up in—and in order to help create the climate solutions we need. This is why our Free Little Library program will focus on Environmental Education.

Environmental Education is shown to improve:

  • Knowledge in science, mathematics, reading, writing, and more
  • Emotional and social skills, such as self-esteem, character development, team work, and leadership skills
  • Environmentally friendly behavior, such as reducing water use, increasing recycling, and participating in community cleanups
  • Academic skills (21st Century skills), such as critical thinking, oral communication, analytical skills, problem solving, and higher-order thinking
  • Motivation to learn, including enthusiasm for and interest in school
  • Civic interest and engagement, including feelings of civic responsibility, feelings of empowerment, and ability to take action
