New ‘Little Free Library’ Opens In Milford
MILFORD — Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front‐yard book exchanges number more than 150,000 around the world in over 100 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. Now, a new Little Free Library at 306 Alexis Drive in Milford will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.
Maggie Kenworthy and Matt Hoy recently opened a Little Free Library in their yard in North Park Subdivision. The library is already stocked with books for readers of all ages, from popular adult fiction titles to children’s board books. Community members are invited to come take a book to enjoy. If inclined, book donations are also welcome.
“Since our home is in a subdivision with a lot of families, our hope is that this library will be loved by many,” said Kenworthy. “If we can bring the joy of reading to just one person, our mission is accomplished. We can’t wait to see people frequenting our library this summer and hopefully for years to come.”
This new Little Free Library is charter No. 165817. You can use the Little Free Library app or website to find its location on the map.
There are 16 other officially-charted Little Free Libraries in Kosciusko County, but this is the first official one in Milford.
The Little Free Library nonprofit organization has been honored by the Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation and the American Library Association. Reader’s Digest named them one of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America.” To learn more, visit littlefreelibrary.org.
