Little Free Library at the Green Tent

Take a book, leave a book

Courtesy of Transition Mar Vista/Venice, we'll have a Little Free Library at the Green Tent for the next month.

Little Free Library's mission is

  • To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide. 

  • To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity, and wisdom across generations

The very first Little Library sits in the front yard of a home above the St. Croix River in Hudson, Wisconsin. It's full of books about gardening and community life. Not a drop of water has trickled inside...but books have come and gone since its first week by the river.  
..   When its sojourn at the Green Tent is over, Transitions will permanently install our Little Free Library somewhere in our community. Transitions is building additional Little Free Library boxes from scrape materials on June 30. Contact Transitions if you're interested in helping to build the boxes or in having one installed.
