Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March would approve. The Little Free Library nonprofit organization and Sony Pictures are unveiling Little Women-themed book-sharing boxes in ten U.S. cities.
The “Little Women Libraries” celebrate Louisa May Alcott’s classic book and the highly-anticipated film from Sony Pictures Little Women, which was written for the screen and directed by Greta Gerwig. The movie will make its way to U.S. theaters on December 25.
Each Little Women-themed book-sharing box was gifted to a local community steward. In addition, 2,000 new Little Women Movie books will be donated to stock them and another 50 Little Free Library locations around the country. Visitors to the little libraries are invited to take a book or share a book of their own. (And there may just be some additional surprises along the way, courtesy of the Little Women film!)
Books were so dear to the March sisters. By partnering with the Little Free Library organization, Little Women is improving book access for all—a key tenet of the Little Free Library organization. There are more than 90,000 registered Little Free Library book-sharing boxes in all 50 states and in 91 countries. Through them, more than 120 million books have been shared.
“We are thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures in our ongoing effort to bring books to communities that have none,” said Greig Metzger, executive director of Little Free Library. “It is even more rewarding that we are sharing a great American classic, Little Women, as part of our partnership.”
