Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front-yard book exchanges number 60,000 around the world in 80 countries- from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. Now, a new Little Free Library in Hermann will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.
What goes better with a great book than a sweet treat? Thanks to Tammy Bruckerhoff and the Wall Dogs, Hermann’s first Little Free Library is located in Sugar Momma’s courtyard.
Readers of all ages are invited to stop by and browse the collection. If you see something you would like to read, take it. It’s for you. When you’re finished with a book, you may pass it along to a friend or return it to any Little Free Library. Be sure to include a note in it when you’re done.
Your books are welcome at any Little Free Library. Especially desired are books you would recommend to a friend, your childhood favorites and books that teach and spark conversation.
This particular library is stewarded by Jill Jacob but made possible by several caring members of the Hermann community. Without the gracious donations from the adult Sunday School class at St. Paul UCC, this vision wouldn’t have been achieved so quickly.
The Little Free Library nonprofit organization has been honored by the Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation and the American Library Association and Readers Digest names them one of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America.”
Each year, nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries. To learn more, visit littlefreelibrary.org.
