The Problem

Many of the under-served schools in our area do not have libraries for students to check out books; likewise, there are not nearby free libraries, nor Little Free Libraries (take a book/leave a book) in those areas. Our homeschool cooperative would like to build 3 Little Free Libraries to install in areas of most need to help build equity in areas of poverty.

Our Plan

Our homeschool cooperative plans to build as many Little Free Libraries as possible to install in areas of poverty to help promote equity, and to provide free books to youth in areas where there are not libraries easily accessible. We want to increase access to books for everyone. We would like to build 3 to install and fill this spring.
