Alderman Druh Farrell and Ward 7 participating in community book exchange
On May 25, Alderman Druh Farrell and volunteers from communities across Ward 7 will be building little free libraries at the Cliff Bungalow Arts Centre.
Created with donated materials, each community will be decorating a little free library and installing it at a location of their choice.
Sixteen of 22 communities are participating, with an additional four libraries being created for the Georgina Thompson Building.
“Little free libraries are a simple way for neighbours to get to know each other and share their love of books,” says Alderman Druh Farrell.
Little free libraries is a community book exchange movement that started in the United States and has spread worldwide.
Members of a community construct small containers that offer free books.
Each library has a steward who monitors for such things as vandalism, number of books available in the library and general upkeep.
Alderman Druh Farrell says she hopes that this project will inspire others to create their own Little Free Libraries in communities across Calgary.
