LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette neighborhood has helped promote literacy with a neighborhood library.
The Little Free Library program started in 2009 in Wisconsin and has been part of a free book exchange. The books are stored in containers, similar to mail boxes, that appear like small houses.
Anyone can take a book home, return it back to the Little Free Library, or pass the book onto a friend.
Susan Crecelius created the Little Free Library in front of her house at Saw Mill Run to honor her parents Hal and Nadya Crecelius.
She said she wanted everyone to share the items inside the library.
"There's lots of different kinds of media in here which is important to me. I'm putting my newspaper in here, there are magazines, there are books, there are some large print books, so I'm hoping there is something for everyone," said Susan Crecelius, Library Steward, Little Free Library.
The Hal and Nadya Crecelius Little Free Library of Saw Mill Run can be found at 111 Windy Hill Dr. in Lafayette.
Currently the only Little Free Library in Lafayette, Crecelius hoped the program will be expanded into other neighborhoods. To find out more information about the Little Free Library and how to get involved, click here .
