Flint's got big problems. But there are small ways you can make the city a better place. Here's one of them:
Over the summer we opened Mott Park's first Little Free Library on a stump in front of our rental home. We see visitors every single day picking out a book, returning a book. We've seen children reading books while waiting for the bus, entire families riding their bikes to pick out a book, families going on walks to pick out books -- books! People are reading books!Make a small donation via Kickstarter here.
Sadly, however, as renters, my husband and I had to unexpectedly leave this home where the Frank St. library resides, and were asked to take the library with us; however, not wanting the library to suddenly disappear on the dedicated patrons who use the library we were able to find the Frank St. Little Free Library a new home right across the street! (Hooray!) But, being the book lovers that we are, we are looking to raise funds to purchase a second Little Free Library to put in front of our new home in the 2500 block of Thomas St., which is about a half-mile away from the Frank Street LFL. I do have this not-so-secret goal of helping put a library on every street in Mott Park -- how cool would that be!
