The William F. Laman Public Library System is excited to announce its first three “Little Free Library” installments in North Little Rock.
The “Little Free Libraries” can be found south of the dog park in Burns Park and in front of the North Little Rock City Services building located at 300 Main Street, and across the street from the Lakewood Property Owners Association (LPOA) offices on Lakeshore Drive. Persons can visit a library, take a book, and replace it with another - all free of charge and without being a library patron. All books used in these libraries are donated and recycled to the public. “Little Free Library” is a national program used to promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide, and now totaling over 2,500 participating libraries.
“We are so pleased to be able to offer a new idea in library service to our community. We hope our patrons enjoy the availability of books throughout North Little Rock as we add them to other locations in the City,” said Jeff Baskin, Executive Director for the William F. Laman Public Library System.
These are the first “Little Free Libraries” to be placed in Central Arkansas, totaling eight in the state. Five are located in Northwest Arkansas. Several more locations are being scouted for the next little library. Will your neighborhood be next?
