This helps families have 24/7 access to books all year round!


"Why Does Book Access Matter?"

(Source: www.littlefreelibrary.org/about)


One of the most successful ways to improve the reading achievement of children is to increase their access to books, especially at home (McGill-Franzen & Allington, 2009).

     Little Free Libraries play an essential role by providing

24/7 access to books (and encouraging a love of reading!)

in areas where books are scarce.


How You Can Help

The Little Free Library belongs to the whole community - students, parents, neighbors, friends, and people we don't even know yet! All of us can help by keeping this collection organized and stocked with current, fun reading material.


- Donate books

- Sort books by type (Picture, Chapter, and Nonfiction)

- Display books you love

- Remove damaged books

- Tell everyone about it



How It Began

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small book exchanges number 36,000 around the world in 70 countries.


I knew I wanted to join the movement to share books, bring people together, and create a community of readers.


On a mission, I persuaded The Gazette in Colorado Springs to donate an old newspaper distribution center sitting in their warehouse. A fresh coat of paint and Timber artwork transformed and repurposed it as a Little Free Library at High Plains!
