Detroit Little Libraries

DESCRIPTION

Detroit Little Libraries - a grassroots group partnering with the national Little Free Library - is working to promote reading, community and neighborhood pride in the city by installing little free libraries.

For the uninitiated, a little free library is a container about the size of a doll house that is placed outside someone's house, or in a public space such as a park. It is filled with books that anyone can take, read and keep. Patrons are encouraged to return a book for someone else in the community . Stewards in the neighborhoods take care of the little library, and often evolve into ambassadors for community involvement.
