Tim, who overcame dyslexia as a young child created the project to encourage children and adults to read more. Anyone can borrow a free book but must replace it with another one. Tim is a member of Boy Scout Troop #153 which meets at the Assumption BVM Catholic Church, also in Feasterville. He received help to finish the custom library box from other Scouts and community volunteers. All of the books are from donations.
