Colorado authors donate to Little Free Libraries across the state
in Colorado Authors League Book Bomb
The Colorado Authors League in partnership with the worldwide non-profit Little Free Library is sponsoring a Book Bomb week July 26th through August 2nd. CAL members are dropping copies of their books in Little Free Library locations throughout Colorado. With public libraries still closed, Little Free Libraries are filling a crucial need for the community providing new books for readers young and old.
Greig Metzger, Executive Director of Little Free Library says "We have seen usage at Little Free Libraries accelerate significantly during the pandemic, with a heightened number of visits by all ages...That means in many cases that there are more books going out than returning so we really appreciate the Colorado Authors League's support to "Book Bomb" local Little Free Libraries with additional titles. It is a fun and easy way to help the community."
“Our CAL members are excited to take part in Book Bomb week and we thank the Little Free Library organization for their partnership and support,” says CAL co-president and award winning Colorado author Lisa Reinicke. “CAL encourages readers of all ages to visit a Little Free Library today and enjoy a new summer read from the Colorado Authors League.”
Little Free Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Learn more about Little Free Library at: littlefreelibrary.org
