Little Free Library. Take a Book, Return a Book
The Little Free Library is a simple concept that was developed by its founder, Todd Bol, in Hudson, Wisc., as a way to honor his mother who had loved books and encouraged people to read.
Today there are Little Free Libraries in at least 28 states and six countries including Ghana, Australia and Afghanistan.
The Traverse Area District Library (TADL) is pleased to sponsor the first registered Little Free Library in Northern Michigan, Charter #0764 located at 228 S. Spruce Street in the Kids Creek Neighborhood.
It is the goal of TADL to bring this innovative idea to our community and inspire others to serve as literary stewards and create their own Little Free Libraries. It's about sharing the importance of literacy with our neighbors while creating a sense of community. Read the press release. View the Kids Creek Little Free Library photo gallery.
