Little Free Libraries find homes in Wellington Heights

Community and neighborhood organizations are working together with volunteers and generous donors to place 25 Little Free Libraries in front yards throughout the Wellington Heights neighborhood of Cedar Rapids.  Little Free Libraries are sturdy, colorful, hand-built boxes full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.  In addition to making it easier for kids to access books, organizers hope neighbors will meet around the little libraries to talk about stories they’ve read.  The libraries are built by a crew at Knutson Construction.  The effort is being led by City of Literature board member Tim Terry, co-founder and partner with Terry, Lockridge & Dunn and World Trend Financial.  More information about this initiative can be found here.
