You may have noticed a new and colorful addition to Journey’s Native Garden. Journey School Parent, Lindsey, shares the story behind the “Little Free Library” below:
We were first introduced to the Little Free Library through my niece, Coco. She maintained one on the front yard of her home. She was an avid reader and a lover of books! Coco passed away in August of 2015 and her parents, family, and friends have planted little libraries in her honor.
We are so excited to plant a little library on our Journey School campus. It is filled with books with a focus on ages 5-12. We want you to take a book, but also bring a book back.
The mission of little libraries is simple:
To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
