Build a Little Free Library at Humanics Park
Hi, my name is Jocelyne Smallian-Khan and I am a member of the Board of Directors for the Humanics Institute.
One of the projects I'm hoping to realize this year is installing a Little Free Library at the Humanics Sanctuary and Sculpture Park in Cumberland Ontario.
For more information about the Humanics Institute and the Humanics Sanctuary and Sculpture Park, please visit:
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Library book-exchange boxes. To learn more about Little Free Libraries, or to find a Little Free Library near you, visit: https://littlefreelibrary.org/
I have already invested some my own money to purchase a registered Little Free Library charter sign, guestbook, book stickers, bookmarks, and other library supplies.
The next big purchase required for this project is the materials to build the library exchange box and associated supplies for its installation, which will cost an estimated $700 for a basic sturdy library. Due to the weather we experience here in Canada's national capital region, we need to make sure the library is wind-, water-, and snow-proof.
Any surplus funds left over after the library is built and installed will be spent in the following ways:
- purchasing books for the library
- enhancing and expanding the library (signage, paint, lighting, adding more boxes)
- purchasing additional library supplies (guest books, book stickers, bookmarks, etc.)
For transparency purposes, a detailed accounting of how the funds raised through this compaign are used will be posted on the Humanics Institute blog at https://humanicsinstitute.org/blog/
