CREATE A “LITTLE FREE LIBRARY”?
Would any of you wonderful parents be willing and able to create a 'Little Free Library' or donate an old cupboard that we could adapt to create our own 'Little Free Library', that we could position at our front gates and possibly around our playground. This could then be a place where the children could be encouraged to donate books and borrow books for free to each other. We will be supplying old library books that we are replacing when we carry out the redesign of our school library. These were little areas that were popping up throughout the lock down, when shops were shut and we would love to be able to take that idea and use it to encourage the sharing of the great books that the children are reading! Here are some photos to show you the kind of 'Little Free Library' areas that we are talking about. A 30-Second Introduction to Little Free Library.
