Our Community Little Library

$1,000 goal

Campaign created 3 months ago
Hi, meet Elijah, Emmeline, and Landen. These kids have a passion for helping others and have asked to build a Little Library for our neighborhood, as well as a bench for people to sit and read. We saw the idea online by accident and they’ve been excited ever since!

We have begun plans for both the bench and library, and we’ve all started to collect some used books, as well as a few new ones, but the kids were very insistent that we provide as many new books as we can.

If you’re not familiar with a Little Library, it’s a box that offers books to be borrowed and returned or kept with a donation of another book. These Little Libraries are usually on someone’s private property and are sometimes a lifeline to children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get to an actual library. These libraries also give kids the chance to keep new books that are at their reading level and trade the books that they have outgrown, to others who would want them. 

Our goal is to have this be an asset to our community and be able to instill a love for books in the kids of our neighborhood. We also have the ability to have the donations here be increased with a 50% match! That would be $1500 in books! These libraries can sometimes take a few thousand dollars to run a year, depending on the area, and so we are hoping to get some support on top of the books we have collected and bought ourselves!

Elijah, Emmeline, and Landen are excited to to get their project running and would love any help they can get! Thank you!
