Little Free Library book exchanges have come to West New York parks.
Little Free Library (LFL) is a nonprofit organization that aims to improve book access by fostering neighborhood book exchange boxes around the world in hopes of inspiring a love of reading and building community.
From the Hudson Reporter:
“The LFL’s is the world’s largest book exchange program with over 100,000 units in over 100 countries. West New York will now join the movement to share books, bring people together, and create a community of readers.
‘Take a book and share a book’
“Little Free Library is a great community program that we are proud to be a part of,” said Rodriguez. “Encouraging our residents to read, come together as a community, and spend time at our beautiful parks is a win any way you look at it. We want our residents to take a book and share a book with their neighbors.”
West New York will provide residents with the first round of books, from early childhood books to novels for adults. Providing various genres will allow readers to find a books that they enjoy while allowing them to share another book that another resident can fall in love with.
