Little Free Libraries
Thanks to the Portsmouth Service League, we have 5 ready for adoption and pick up by Portsmouth area groups.
An international program, the Little Free Libraries found a way into the Friends' hearts. It's motto of 'take a book, leave a book' seemed like a natural extension of our Portsmouth library mission.
The Friends first partnered with the Global Youth Action group to have local teens build LFLs. Those were successfully placed. Now, we have 5 built by the Portsmouth Service League which are available to area non-profits and groups. The Friends offer to share our book donations with the LFL owners and to register them with the international listing which puts them on the world map.
LFLs have been donated to and are installed at: Wesley Community Center, Gail Harts Dance, Parkview Community Garden, Cradock Community Garden, Hoffler Creek Wildlife Preserve, Portsmouth Christian School, Hampton Roads Regional Jail (and awaiting installation is the Portsmouth Community Library Museum).
