Little Free Libraries at Callison

September 15, 2016

 

 

 

 

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, book exchanges currently number more than 44,000 around the world in 70 countries- from the United States to Iceland to Tasmania. Now, Callison has two of it's very own Little Free Libraries. With these LFLs Callison joins the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.

The members of the 2015-16 PTA donated 2 Little Free Libraries to the students of Callison Elementary. Under the direction of Callison art teacher Kim Block, the libraries were painted by students and parent volunteers. The Little Free Libraries will be stewarded by the Callison PTA and Laura Trellue the Callison Elementary Librarian. 

The PTA donated 2 little free libraries, because they felt it was important to have one to fill with children’s books and then a 2nd one to fill with chapter books for the older students.

 “We wanted students to have access to books to read at any time of the day. When a student is done with a book they can bring it back, or if they love the book they are welcome to keep it and build their home library or pass it along to a friend,” Jessica Arceneaux.

 

The Little Free Library nonprofit organization has been honored by the Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation, and the American Library Association, and Reader’s Digest, named them of of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America.”

Each year, nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries. To learn more, please visit littlefreelibrary.org
