Little Free Libraries





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Escondido

Total Budget: $2,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: To build and install 5 (five) Little Free Libraries in low income/high density areas of Escondido near elementary schools

The name Little Free Libraries is quite self-explanatory and will not need a long description. Though, the way we (the Escondido Rotary Club) want to do it is specific. We have three club members with advanced woodworking skills and access to all necessary tools. Our plan is to build five little libraries and install them near Elementary school in low-income and high-density neighborhoods that kids can exchange books on their way home from school.

Everybody knows how important the reading is for kids. But the prices we see now on children's books are astronomical, and very few families can afford them. For many children, our little free libraries will be the only place they can find books.

Timeline for this project:

Complete all building and installation before May 31, 2022.
