Little Free Libraries
The Little Free Libraries Design Competition was presented by Culture Days Manitoba, Winnipeg Public Library and StorefrontMB. The contest was an invitation to local artists, architects and designers to design Little Free Libraries for Winnipeg neighbourhoods. Organizers aligned selected designs and their designers with Little Free Library ‘stewards’ in the community.
Little Free Library is an international movement that promotes stewardship and active community involvement by engaging the public in reading and literacy in their backyard. The Little Free Library program operates on a “take a book, return a book” principle, and now sponsors over 5,000 libraries in neighborhoods worldwide.
