Little Free Pantries Allow Communities To Lend Neighbors A Helping Hand

In any community, there are those who could use a little extra help, and there are those who are willing to go out of their way to provide that helping hand. And now, thanks to an organization known as The Little Free Pantry, communities will now have an even easier time lending love and support...

Trish Unzicker. Georgetown, TX. This library is located at the front of our property. Our library is made from recycled wood and tin from a barn in Illinois. When my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year, I told him that I wanted a Little Free Library for our community. Our family loves to read and would like to share that love with our neighborhood.

Dale Rupright. O'Fallon, IL. Our Little Free Library is part of a city-wide effort to increase literacy by The Rotary Club of O'Fallon, Illinois, of which our steward is a member. It was decorated by the O'Fallon Township High School Art Club. Our library will offer books that appeal to a broad range of readers.

Kristie Nix Blunt. Afton, OK. Inspired by a story about Little Free Libraries in Rotary International's publication, it was decided that our community needed its own LFL. We reinforced and improved a shelving unit in the shape of a canoe, added weatherproofing and began circulating books. We have a tremendous number of weekend guests to our part of the lake and hope the LFL will motivate others to have their own libraries.
