An officer with the Shannon (LA) Police Department is being lauded for helping set up "little libraries" for local kids to get access to books even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to CBS News, Officer Jermandy Jackson started by setting up a "Little Free Library" across the street from a local elementary school.
Officer Jackson then set up book boxes for elementary-age students around the county.
"I want to push education. I want to thank the school superintendent for jumping on board with me and getting on board with our kids who can read more, in our areas, especially in rural areas. I want to see book boxes throughout the area. I'm going to make it my plan to make sure they are throughout the whole county," Jackson said.
