The Conn’s Home Plus and Little Free Library Partnership
This year, Little Free Library is partnering with furniture and specialty home goods retailer Conn’s HomePlus to bring 50 book exchanges to neighborhoods and communities across the company’s 12-state region.
Throughout the year, Conn’s HomePlus will host reading parties at select schools where students will read with their employees and decorate Little Free Libraries that will be distributed into the students’ communities.
The first reading party kicked off this past Wednesday at Roosevelet Elementary in McAllen, Texas and it was a blast! Conn’s donated 1,000 books to the school, Conn’s employees read out loud to the children and everyone got to decorate Little Free Libraries that will be donated to the local community, too.
The next stops in the 2016 Conn’s Cares program include:
- Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Beaumont, Texas
- El Paso, Texas
- Nashville, Tennessee
- Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
- Southaven, Mississippi
- Tulsa, Oklahoma
