Little Free Library Celebrates 11 years
You can also join the network of more than 100,000 libraries and start your own! Watch this 30-second Introduction to Little Free Library.
In April 2022, CSA put up their own Free Little Library just before Earth Day. Several Sisters and Staff gathered to bless the library and add their first donation of books. The books have been continuing to be replenished ever since by donations made to the JPIC Office, books shared from the Motherhouse Library, or just random passersby wishing to take a book and/or share a book. Some are making donations to celebrate their personal birthdays. Books for children and youth are very popular with St. Mary's Springs Academy right across the street.
We are dedicated to furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion with the books we share. By providing greater, more equitable book access in our neighborhood, we work to strengthen our community and influence literacy outcomes.
The Free Little Library is available year long. Next time you’re in the area, please bring a book to donate, or feel free take a book. You will notice the beautiful way the library is painted by Sister Doris Klein, CSA.
