Eagle Valley in Woodbury will have a Little Free Library (LFL) and everyone is welcome to the installation and grand opening event on the day where neighbors get together to celebrate Minnesota’s fifth annual “Night to Unite” (also called National Night Out in some places)
Tuesday, August 6, 2013, 6:30 – 8 pm
10422 Golden Eagle Trail, Woodbury, MN 55129
The event is free, but donation is welcome to support LFL
Please stop by to –
- Meet the LFL Co-Founder and Executive Director Todd Bol
- Meet the award winning KARE 11 reporter Boyd Huppert
- Meet your neighbors and get to know each other
- Help with the installation of the Eagle Valley Little Free Library
- Support the LFL effort worldwide
- Celebrate Minnesota’s Fifth Annual “Night to Unite”
- See yourself on KARE 11 news (maybe)
- Receive a free book (while supplies last)
- Enjoy some ice cream (Feel free to bring a treat to share)
I am very excited to be the steward for the Eagle Valley Little Free Library on behalf of our neighbors and community. The way it works is simple:
- I initially stock the LFL with a variety of books
- You stop by and take whatever catches your fancy
- You return and bring books to contribute
- LFL books are always a gift – never for sale!
Little Free Library is a movement started by Todd Bol of Hudson and Rick Brooks of Madison in 2010, and has grown to include little libraries in most states and dozens of countries.
Little Free Library’s mission is to promote literacy, a love of reading and community-building by supporting free book exchanges worldwide. Visit www.littlefreelibrary.org to learn more about it and to look at the many amazing examples of little libraries from around the world.
What makes this event even more special and exciting is that KARE 11 news reporter Boyd Huppert will also be present to film the event.
Boyd, a winner of numerous regional and national awards, including multiple Emmys and Edward R. Murrows, has been a reporter for over thirty years, and is known for his Land of 10,000 Stories, available on KARE 11 website. His work has been shown on CNN and NBC.
Today I happened to find out that Boyd’s wife Sheri is a fellow librarian working for the state of Minnesota. With his background/experience and his unique connection to the library world, I can’t think of anyone who is better equipped to report the LFL story. So I am super excited to meet and work with both Bol and Boyd on this project.
