Help us congratulate our RNW Project Director and SJSU iSchool Director Dr. Anthony Chow, in his recent appointment to the Little Free Library National Board. In partnership, they secured a $1.4 million grant that aspires to “address barriers to literacy & libraries for Native American children & families in five tribal communities nationally.” The Reading Nation Waterfall project aims to promote this mission with the collaborative and invaluable efforts of our Tribal Partners. You can read more of the SJSU School of Information’s blog here.
Little Free Library started with one book-sharing box built in 2009 in Wisconsin. Over the years, their global impact has shaped the way we connect literacy to diverse communities. To date, there are over 125,000 Little Free Libraries across 50 U.S. States and 112 countries.
Very cool! I have always loved the idea of Little Free Libraries and am excited to see this.
