10 ‘little libraries’ to open new chapter in Parkside

“Left without a library, the Parkside neighborhood has taken matters into its own hands. In a few months, 10 wooden stands will be placed in front of homes and businesses. The “little libraries” will be filled with books that passers-by can take and return as they please. No library cards, registration or fees required. “We’re trying to create that third space, not home, not work, where neighbors congregate and interact,” said Ben Johnson, executive director of the Parkside Community Association.”
