Livermore : Little Free Library Offers Books for All and More

From The Independent

“A new house was built recently on Jacquiline Way in Livermore. Although no one will ever live in it, it promises to benefit the neighborhood for many years to come.Three Girl Scout Cadettes constructed a book house, or Little Free Library (LFL), from which anyone can take a book or leave a book.”Over the past year and a half, we have been working on our Silver Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn,” explained Leanne Darby, who leads multi-level Girl Scout Troop 30310. “For the project we chose to build a Little Free Library and dedicate it to the Livermore community. It will be filled with all genres of books for all ages, while also including materials on bullying and self-esteem for children and teens.”The Cadettes’ book house is one of seven LFLs registered in Livermore. The LFL movement began in 2009 with the goal of promoting literacy and the love of reading, encouraging a sense of community through shared experiences, and building 2,510 Little Free Libraries – equaling the number of full-sized libraries Andrew Carnegie built a century ago. Today, there are 50,000 Little Free Libraries around the world.”
