Little Free Library

If you’ve come for a visit recently, you may have noticed yet another lovely new addition to our front entrance- a Little Free Library! The Little Free Library movement was started in 2009 by Todd Bol in Wisconsin. The first one looked like a one room schoolhouse and was a tribute to his mother, a school teacher. Now there are over 50,000 of them worldwide, including at least 4 right here in La Habra! We love that our visitors and our community will be able to “Take a book, leave a book!” Remember what Dr. Seuss said- “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

To find out more about the Little Free Library foundation, visit their website. Special thanks to the United Way for donating the library and books, the Burbank family for being our models for the day, and to our exhibits intern Savannah Morra for customizing it so nicely!
