Take a book and leave one. That is the goal of the Little Lethbridge Library program here in our city. There is a new mobile library set up at Gyro Park. Sarah Head, the Manager of Branch Services from the Lethbridge Public Library says they still have people coming up with locations around the city for where they would like to have a new little library.
“I’d say they’ve maintained a real steady popularity. During the pandemic they became kind of essential tools for us to get books out to people. And we did mobilize and fill them all up with library book discards and also coloring sheets. And we worked with Building Brains together to put activities on the side. So you might notice that some of them still have that parental and kid play information on the side.”
The little libraries are stocked with discarded books from the Lethbridge Public Library. The Ability Resource Centre comes out to make sure there are always fresh books for lovers of literature.
