Help us build community and spread literacy!
Have you ever stumbled across a tiny home filled with books in someone’s front yard or parking strip? – it is probably a Little Free Library™! There are dozens throughout Ballard and more popping up all the time. Some even double as free food pantries. These little libraries are helping to spread literacy and fun throughout our community. Now we need your help – we are looking for a new Project Lead!
Over the past decade the Little Free Library Project has:
- Hosted building workshops
- Offered carpentry help
- Collected wood donations
- Held book drives
- Had book exchanges
- Published maps
- Recruited troops and groups to get involved
- Taken pictures to capture the creativity of many boxes in Ballard (from art installations, to supply source during Covid and more)
- Spent time searching out new Little Libraries and delivering new books to all
The national site has great newsletters and ideas, and the possibilities are endless, and fun is guaranteed! If this sounds like just the thing for you to take on in 2023 please let us know by contacting Jenny Heins. Thank you and Happy Reading!
