Steward Spotlight: St. Andrews Church Community Literacy Project

St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Killarnock, Virginia launched their Community Literacy Project in 2013. The original goal was to put up four Little Free Library book-sharing boxes in nearby counties, but they decided to expand the project when they saw how many readers (especially young ones!) were gaining access to books because of the Little Libraries.

Little Free Libraries are more than just quaint little boxes that people put up in their front yards. Cities and organizations around the country are putting them up 5, 10 or 20 at a time to serve a variety of purposes. The city of Brantford, Ontario put their own creative spin on the 10 Little Free Libraries they placed around town.

Every day we see cute, thoughtful Little Library designs that didn’t break the bank and required little-to-no assembly. Take Little Free Library steward Iliana Morton, for example. Her Library is a transformed IKEA metal cabinet cube that cost her $25, and the result is a bright, cute, cost-effective Library!

Rhonda managed to get around 150 people to attend her Little Free Library’s Grand Opening and just about the whole town knew about it, which is one of the most wildly successful events we’ve heard of! She didn’t do anything crazy or exceptional, either. In fact, she followed a simple series of steps that just about anyone can take.
