Little Free Libraries

You may have noticed the book 'birdhouses' at Ocee, Newtown, and Shakerag Parks. Todd Bol, who started Little Free Libraries passed away at 62. 

Bol set a goal of 2,150 — to beat the number of Carnegie Libraries in the country. Less than a decade later, more than 75,000 'libraries-on-a-stick' have sprouted on front lawns in 88 countries!The Star Tribune has a wonderful tribute to Todd. We hope you'll take a minute to learn more.
