Boxes filled with books are popping u in Rockford, thanks to the SwedishAmerican Foundation.
It’s called Little Free Libraries. Readers can borrow a book or donate one for others to enjoy.
“The number of books that kids actually have is alarmingly low,” said foundation director Laura Wilkinson. “This is a way for them to have access to books during breaks, during summer break, any time.”
You can find the free libraries at the following locations:
- Beattie Playground in Jackson Oaks
- Strong House on Revell Avenue
- 900 block of 13th Street
- 900 block of 15th Street (Keith Creek Neighborhood)
