Here at Dig It, we love to give back to our community. There are so many causes that are important to each member of our team, the Girl Scouts being one! This Summer, Troop 2751 reached out to Dig It to see if we would be interested in hosting their Little Free Library inside our store. Of course - we said yes! We wanted to take the time to explain what a Little Free Library is, and how you can utilize it.
Little Free Library is a nonprofit that works to inspire a love for reading throughout communities and neighborhoods. It is a book exchange program, with millions exchanged each year. Each library is built by members of the local community and installed in a number of public locations. Most are maintained by the community, in an effort to increase literacy and ongoing education. Girl Scouts across the country have built and installed hundreds of Little Libraries to improve their communities. These libraries are used as a successful. sustainable and powerful tool to ensure access to books to people of all ages for years to come. Not only this, but Little Free Library helps each Girl Scout learn useful skills as they build, install, and maintain the library.
Troop 2751 wanted to especially inspire children to garden through fun books of all ages. If you would like to participate in Troop 2751’s Little Library, all you need to do is leave a book to take a book! Some may choose to donate more than they take, and some aren’t able to leave one when they take - this is 100% okay. All we ask is to be mindful of our community. If you aren’t able to make it into Dig It, not to worry! Click here to view the library locator to find a little library near you.
