The program is free and also provides a great way to bond with your child.  Stop by the front desk to register and pick up a folder that contains a program overview, log, suggested booklist, and early literacy tips.  Logging books read is as simple as checking off a number on a paper log or via the app. Incentives are offered at each 100 mark.

Little Free Library

Here’s how it works
 
- Visit the Little Free Library and if you see a book you would like to read, take it home with you
- When you are done, pass it on to a friend.
- You may leave books for others to read by placing them in the box. But please, do not leave books outside of the box!
 
This is a great way to promote community, sharing and literacy!
