Live Oak Friends Meeting invites The Heights and the greater Houston communities to join them for the dedication of the Children’s Annex to their Little Free Library  on Sunday, September 25, at noon. Refreshments will be provided.
 
For three years, the original Little Free Library under a shade tree along the front fence has been a neighborhood treasure—people find a book they would like to read to take with them, leave a book they have finished for someone else to enjoy. 
 
They leave notes in the log book about how much they enjoy it, and sometimes  they ask for something, like more kids’ books. Friends listened, and responded with building a “Little Little Free Library” in part from wood recycled from the original floor of the Meetinghouse. It is positioned near the original, but slightly lower down for easier access for kids.
 
The Little Free Library movement began in Wisconsin in 2009 when one person built a miniature one room school and filled it with free books in his front yard as a tribute to his mother who loved to read. Picked up by someone seeking a community development project, it quickly grew into a movement to promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges and is now worldwide with nearly 40,000 Little Free Library book exchanges. The one in front of Live Oak Friends Meeting was the one of the first in The Heights and the fourth in Houston, now there are a many others, but few that focus just on children’s books.
