Give the Gift of Literacy

Putting books in the hands of children has a meaningful impact on improving literacy, and Little Team Library will do just that. Not only will you assemble and decorate a Little Free Library for every two teams, but you will also be creating children’s books to fill them as each team writes and illustrates their own original story. 

We provide all the materials, and there will be opportunities for everyone to shine as they build and paint, write a storyboard, and color. Teams will have to work together to divide and conquer the many tasks at hand. Collaboration is a must to determine the core message of their children’s book and assigning writers and artists to bring that message to life. Participants then choose carpenters and painters to work with another team in the building of their Mini Library. As everyone does their tasks, they will be treated to a storytelling workshop from our experienced facilitators, an entertaining and informative way to help teams develop logical and clear narratives to use. A sharing circle will close the event, where each team reads their story to the entire group.

Everyone will feel like a winner as they fill and pack their libraries so they can be placed by the Little Free Library Organization in communities where they are scarce.
