For­mer news­pa­per ma­chines are now putting the writ­ten word in the hands of a new gen­er­a­tion of read­ers, thanks to the ef­forts of John Moak Scar­brough. Last sum­mer, the Jack­son Academy freshman be­gan work­ing on a com­mu­nity ser­vice project, a re­quire­ment for Ea­gle Scout hope­fuls. His fam­ily’s sup­port of Friends of Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal brought him to tour Bat­son Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at the Univer­sity of Mis­sis­sippi Med­i­cal Cen­ter to look for ways to help. Last month, he and his dad de­liv­ered six news­pa­per vend­ing ma­chines, do­nated by the Clar­ion-Ledger, that they’d re­fur­bished into Lit­tle Free Li­braries.
