Little Free Library
THE LITERACY COUNCIL OF SOUTH TEMISKAMING'S LITTLE FREE LIBRARY
Check out this terrific idea from the Literacy Council of South Temiskaming. It's a Little Free Library!
The Literacy Council of South Temiskaming (a community-based LBS agency in northeastern Ontario) is excited to be the stewards for the Little Free Library #1442 on behalf of their neighbors and our community!
The way it works is simple:
We initially stock the LFL with a variety of good quality books that we hope will interest our neighbors You stop by and take whatever catches your fancy You return and bring books to contribute LFL books are always a gift – never for sale!
Little Free Library is a movement started in the USA in 2010, and has grown to include little libraries in most states and dozens of countries. Little Free Library's mission is to:
Promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide Foster a sense of community and connection as we share skills, creativity and wisdom Build more than 2,510 libraries around the world (the number of "real" libraries built by Andrew Carnegie)!
Check out the LFL story at www.littlefreelibrary.org and look at the amazing examples of little libraries.
