What is That Little Box in Front of Your House? The Little Library Movement and its Impact on Individuals and Libraries
Competency: Library Management
Sub-Category: Builds Relationships with Community Organizations
Drawn in by the ability to help her community, Little Free Library Charter #43798 owner (Anne Abate) provides background on the Little Free Library movement and how she became involved. Little Free Libraries are popping up all over the world. They are truly “community assets”, but what does that mean for libraries and their communities?
After introducing the worldwide efforts, attendees will learn about the actual experiences of this Little Free Library owner with suggestions for putting up your own Little Free Library, either in your own yard, in a park or public space, or in front of your “real” library. A representative from the Little Free Libraries organization will join the webinar to provide additional information and answer questions.
