Congratulations to Sharon on winning the Little Free Library! Thank you to everyone who participated!
Whether you’re sprawled out on the beach with your favorite paperback or curled up on the couch with your most recent book club book, there’s nothing better than going on a page-by-page adventure. Little Free Library™ is an upper Midwest nonprofit phenomenon responsible for promoting this pastime we love and growing an international network of literal Little Free Libraries. Not sure what a Little Free Library is? Let us fill you in. Little Free Libraries are miniature house-like structures filled with free books that families and children can borrow, trade or leave a book for someone else.
Mall of America® is partnering with Little Free Library to exceed the number of public libraries funded by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie over a century ago (2,509 libraries). MOA™ will donate 20 uniquely designed Little Libraries to local communities, including special Little Library #2,510 to break the record!
Does this sounds like something you want to get involved in? You can! We are giving away one Little Free Library to someone who wants to bring the joy of reading to their own community. The winner will be the official Community Steward of the Little Library! Responsibilities include:
- Scheduling and attending the installation of the library
- Watching over the library to make sure there are no damages and if there are, fixing them
- Monitoring the library to ensure it is stocked with books at all times
- Monitoring the library to make sure the books shared are appropriate
- Raising awareness of the library in your neighborhood
