Little Free Libraries Popping Up in Rockford


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)
