A Little Free Library for Mill Creek?

A Little Free Library for Mill Creek?

A group of Mill Creek homeowners is interested in having a "Little Free Library" in Mill Creek.

Communities across North America have erected small structures for sharing donated books with their neighbors. Go to the Little Free Libraries website to see what our neighbors across the country have done! http://littlefreelibrary.org/

The idea is simple: families or neighbors build a small "library" box and install it on a post along the street. It is filled with donated books available to everyone, and most have a mix of books for adults and children. This grass-roots movement began with one box in Wisconsin in 2009, and there now 10,000+ around the world, with more being installed every week.

If you are interested in planning one for Mill Creek, get in touch with Addeane Caelleigh (asc8f@virginia.edu) or Janet Eden (outsidewitheden@aol.com).

Charlottesville has at least three Little Free Libraries: one on Palatine Avenue in Belmont, another in Key West/Cedar Hills, and the newest one in Greenbriar, pictured above.
