Southwest Tech has embarked on a project to make and place 50 Little Free Libraries in communities within our district.
1 What is it?
It's a "take a book, return a book" free book exchange.
Little Free Libraries are about community connections, just as much as they're about books and literacy.
- Identify sponsors
- Identify stewards
- Identify locations
- Build them
- Begin placement
By 2017 have 50 installed within our district!!!!
3 How we need you!
Join us as a community ambassador by supporting and utilizing our Southwest Tech Little Free Libraries throughout our district.
Little Free Libraries come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called "mini-town squares."
