Little Free Library™
Be a part of this exciting volunteer and partnership opportunity
It seems like a simple concept. If children have access to books early in life, they have a better chance for academic success down the road.
However, many families in need struggle to provide books to their children, and many new parents aren’t aware of the importance of early language and literacy. Within our own community, there are “book deserts” in areas where poverty is prevalent and many homes lack the adequate quantity and quality of books necessary to engage young children and their families in language and literacy.
One way Southwest Human Development is doing its part in the community is by partnering with individuals, neighborhoods, local businesses, as well as other nonprofit organizations in Maricopa County to place as many Little Free Libraries as possible for children who need them most. Little Free Libraries are “take one, leave one” book stations. The movement allows any individual to have easy access to books, regardless of their financial situation.
Southwest Human Development uses superior quality paints generously donated by Dunn-Edwards Paints. Check out some of the unique Little Free Libraries Southwest Human Development has installed in communities throughout the Valley!
