How did a little idea grow so big so fast?
Join Envision Minnesota on Wed., Feb. 13 from 6-8 p.m. at Macalester College for our next Creative Placemaking event featuring the biggest little movement to pop up on streets across Minnesota communities and around the world.
See a short film about the growth of the Little Free Library movement, hear from founder Todd Bol about how it got started, and participate in World Cafe discussions about the ways Little Free Libraries can add life to the street, bring neighbors together, foster literacy, and more!
Todd Bol will give out free copies of books to participants from Coffee House Press including Minnesota State Fair: An Illustrated History and Working Words to add to your library collection and share with your neighbors.
Join us for a fun discussion of the power of the Little Free Library. Those who have installed their own libraries in their yards or in front of their business or school are encouraged to attend and share what they've learned along the way.
