Maybe you’ve noticed those cute, house-shaped mini-libraries dotting the neighborhoods. Little Free Libraries hold books to share, and in the process build community and encourage literacy. Your family can build one to place in front of your house, or donate one to your school, faith group or other neighborhood organization.
Talk to your child:
- Why is it a nice idea to have a place for people to get free books right in our yard?
- Where else in our community would be a good place for a Little Free Library?
