We are fortunate here in Owensboro to have multiple Little Free Libraries sprinkled around town.  I noticed last week the ones I saw were completely empty!  Can you help?

Have you heard of the Little Free Library?  Here is what the national organization says it is;

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.

It has been proven that children who do not have access to reading materials are academically three years behind those that do.  These libraries not only give children access to free reading materials but also adults.

The way it works is you can go to the little library and take a book completely free.  If you have the opportunity you can also return a book.  Anyone can donate books as well.

Please make sure books are appropriate and in good condition.  Remember children will have access to these Little Libraries!

Owensboro has 3 little libraries.  One at Smothers Park near the playground.  On 20th Street between Jr. Miller and Frederica Street, and one on Wintergreen Loop North on the West Side.

I know our family has an abundance of books in our home.  We will be doing a bit of purging this week so we can donate!
