Little Free Library Helps Poor, Book-Starved People

 


You may be surprised – and certainly disappointed – by the fact that over 30,000,000 American adults cannot read or write above a third-grade level. They are illiterate, destined to be low-wage earners who contribute little to society and actually become a burden upon it. What can b done by way of providing books to educate and enlighten the impoverished and ignorant?

Little Free Library, a non—profit that offers book exchanges to communities where books are scarce, is playing a key role in providing increased access to free books nationwide.

“In 2009, Little free Library was established. It now serves people in 108 countries.

“On some level, little libraries have always existed,” says a recent Los Angeles times article. “The idea is simple and timeless: boxes, tables and stoops loaded up with free books. The philosophy behind them is also simple: Take a book, leave a book.”

Little Free Library launched during the Great Recession, a time of massive unemployment and decreased funds for libraries. Now, during the pandemic, circumstances also dictate a need for such a library to exist.
