Friday, May 17, 2013 was a monumental day for those who love to read. Greccio Housing in partnership with Vista Ridge High School has created new Grab ‘N Go libraries for residents of Enfield Apartments. The libraries will be available for any Enfield resident to access donated books for readers of all ages.
Vista Ridge High School students and on campus Key Club members, with a small grant from Home Depot, have used a CAD program to design and then build the library structures that will be located in the community area at Enfield Apartments.
Greccio Resident, Dylan Collins was over joyed with excitement about the new book he ‘grabbed’ from the library and voraciously dove into reading it.
It is experiences such as these that are important for our residents, young and old and is just one example of the importance of the support services Greccio provides for its residents.
