SHERIDAN — To give back to the local Sheridan community, Pizza Hut recently installed a Little Free Library outside of its restaurant in Sheridan.
The Little Free Library enables greater access to books and inspires readers of all ages. This one-of-a-kind library, in the shape of the restaurant’s famous “Hut,” was created by Little Free Library specifically for Pizza Hut. The restaurant is encouraging its customers and community members to “take a book, return a book” when they come to visit the library.
Pizza Hut has fostered a love of reading for more than 30 years through the BOOK IT! Program. Roughly one in five Americans have participated in BOOK IT!, including more than 14 million students this year in 620,000 classrooms in the U.S. As part of the initiative, Pizza Hut is celebrating by giving a book to each student at Coffeen Elementary School.
The company recently announced a global commitment to literacy and reading through Pizza Hut: Literacy Project. The campaign seeks to transform the lives of 100 million people over the course of 10 years by helping them become their best through literacy and reading.
