Little Free Libraries Provide Books (and more) for University City’s Readers


From University City News editor Jemma Samala: In the April 2020 print edition of the University City News, we included a photo listing and location of the many Little Free Libraries in University City. Since then, a few more have popped up in the neighborhood. Our own editor’s library has expanded to a bustling three libraries. The Little Free Libraries have been very helpful in providing much needed reading materials for both adults and children. We hear that some books have been helpful in completing school assignments. Some provide items for sharing and exchange such puzzles, magazines, DVDs, bookmarks, and goodie bags. A listing of the UC’s Free Little Libraries:
