Seward’s Little Free Library

In the Media Center, we have our own Little Free Library! This is a gift from Maureen and Bert Casperson to our school.

Little Free Libraries is a non-profit community movement in the U.S. and worldwide that offers free books housed in small containers to members of the local community. It was founded in Hudson, Wisconsin.

The idea was conceived by Todd Bol as a tribute to his mother, who was a book lover and school teacher. He mounted a wooden container designed to look like a school house on a post on his lawn.

Each library is uniquely built in carpentry materials from the community it is located in.

Katharine Skibbe has one on her lawn and there are three within walking distance from the school. If you interested in taking a walking field trip, they are located at:

  • 2321 Minneapolis Ave.
  • 2917 E. 22nd Ave.
  • 2323 32nd Ave.

Please feel free to “Take a Book, Leave a Book.” The Seward community is thankful for the generous “Little Free Library” gift from the Casperson’s. Visit www.littlefreelibrary.org for more information.
