Envision Minnesota & Little Free Libraries

I attended the Envision Minnesota  (formerly 1000 Friends of Minnesota) sponsored event “Little Free Libraries: Promoting Literacy, Community and Placemaking” at Macalester College campus tonight.

The event, which was part of the Creative Placemaking series, featured the biggest little movement to pop up on streets across Minnesota communities and around the world.

We saw a short film about the growth of the Little Free Library movement, heard from founder Todd Bol about how it got started, and participated in a discussion about the ways Little Free Libraries can add life to the street, bring neighbors together, foster literacy, and build communities.

More photos from the event are available on my Facebook.
