Local News

'Little Free Libraries' installed to encourage reading

FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) – The first Fresno Unified “Little Free Library” debuted Friday at a central Fresno elementary school.

Students at Heaton Elementary School, on San Pablo Avenue near Fresno City College, placed books in what will be the first of eight mini-libraries installed at elementary schools across the district.

The library was built during the summer by local high school students in a construction geometry class.

The aim of the libraries, which can be found worldwide, increase reading and a sense of community through the free exchange of books.
