Little Free Library
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A grassroots effort is underway in the Central Valley to get more people to read books.
littlefreelibrary.org provides neighborhoods a small collection of reading materials for kids and adults.
Crews from the Lennar Corporation set up its third mini-library in the Valley in Clovis. They stockpiled it with books raised from a book drive this year. The goal is to get community members to read and share books with each other.
"We have several that we're going to install for non-profits," Susan Wilke said. "And we have quite a few that are going to be installed in the mid-Valley. So Visalia, Bakersfield. And then we'll also be installing some in rural areas. We've got one going in Reedley."
Lennar expects to install up to 15 Little Free Libraries in the next two years. The homes are specially built and painted in Minnesota. That's where the founder lives and created this program.
