Our community has a great core of volunteers who are generous with their time and have a heart for helping children in our community grow to be their best self. Recently, members of the Illinois Valley Community College Rotaract Program, the college version of Rotary, travelled to all the Little Free Libraries throughout LaSalle, Bureau, and Putnam Counties.
At each stop, members deposited 0-to-3 Babybug books that are perfect for infants through 3-year-olds, as well as the Ladybug publication and the NCRBC Words Matter Advocacy pamphlet. These are perfect additions of quality content to read to your baby.
If you have not heard about Little Free Library before, we encourage you to check them out. They are a nonprofit that provides access to books in communities throughout the United States and the world with a network of volunteer-led little libraries. These are small boxes located outside of a home or business or in a public setting where those in the community can come and take a book to read and leave one for someone else to discover. If you would like to start your own LFL or to find out more about this great organization, go to littlefreelibrary.org.
Thank you to all of the Rotaract volunteers for assisting us in stocking our community Little Free Libraries.
