Little Free Libraries
“Take a book. Leave a book.” Lynchburg Parks & Recreation and the Lynchburg Public Library are joining forces to help promote literacy and the love of reading in Lynchburg with the placement of three Little Free Libraries throughout the city. Little Free Libraries (LFLs) are a community movement offering free books housed in hand-made, freestanding structures to members of the local community. The books they house can be taken or borrowed by anyone with an interest in learning.
The Natural Bridge Appalachian Trail Club has volunteered to build our first LFLs which are now located at: Riverside Park, Lynchburg Community Market, and the Ed Page entrance of the Blackwater Creek Bikeway.
Now that our LFLs are in place, we hope you will consider spreading the literary love. Any individual or organization can start a LFL and each box can be unique, allowing volunteers to create a custom, personalized design. Help your community share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations. Visit the website to find out more and get involved! http://littlefreelibrary.org
