Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries is a community movement that has spread throughout the United States. It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite books and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book & bring back another book to share.

Make TODAY Count! has partnered with the High Plains Library District to build and place 20 Little Free Libraries throughout Weld County. The Little Free Libraries are located in people’s front yards, community gardens, parks, and businesses. Having Little Free Libraries in our community will promote literacy, the love of reading, and good conversation–which will help our county thrive.

Make TODAY Count! hosted a Little Free Library Celebration at Ubuntu Community Gardens and Orchards in July. Over 50 people came together to celebrate the love and importance of reading and literacy in our community.
