Little Free Library Opens in Brookfield Town Center
Little Free Library Brookfield

The official unveiling of the first Little Free Library in the Town Center District of Brookfield was held on  June 23  in front of The Brookfield Funeral Home.  The result of a partnership with The Brookfield Library and The Friends of the Brookfield Library, this Little Free Library is a take-a-book, leave-a-book phenomenon sweeping the nation!

Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.  There are now more than 80,000 Little Free Libraries in all 50 states and 90+ countries, from Argentina to Zambia.

“We are so very excited to present the Little Free Library to our friends and neighbors.  It is our way of adding to the positive changes in the Town Center District at the Four Corners in Brookfield.  Stop by frequently to browse the selection of books, they will be changing often as people take a book and leave a book!  Also, visit www.LittleFreeLibrary.org for a map of other libraries in our area!”  Tania Porta, owner of The Brookfield Funeral Home. 

This local unveiling coincides with the 10th Anniversary of the Little Free Library as well as the kick-off of the 2019 Summer Reading Program at The Brookfield Library. Director, Yvonne Cech added “We love the concept of The Little Free Library.  When researching this, we discovered that one challenge that Little Free Libraries face is maintaining a high quality of books.  That’s where we come in!  When Tania (from The Brookfield Funeral Home) first approached us about partnering on this, we knew we would be able to assist by providing good quality books since we receive so many donations.  Tania took care of the rest. Together with The Friends of the Brookfield Library, we will be able to provide a great service to the community. The take-a-book, leave-a-book model encourages people from the community to leave a book when they are able to, but, if things get sparse, we can guarantee a high quality collection.”

Renowned author, Nan Rossiter, who attended the opening, supports the idea of Little Free Libraries in communities.  She is offering her services to do a reading for the unveiling and will be on hand to sign books.  “Having a Little Free Library in your neighborhood is like having a Portkey to the world!” said Nan Rossiter.
