Jacquet River School (JRS) is excited to be the stewards of the Little Free Library, Charter # 26199, on behalf of their neighbors and our community! How does it work? JRS’s Little Free Library is a way to share all kinds of favorite books - books that teach, intrigue and engage. The Little Library belongs to everyone and anyone may use it; it is a community resource and a way to give back. Little Free Library books are always a gift - Never for sale! - Take a Book - If you see something you would like to read it, take it. Check inside to see if there is a note from whoever gave it. You can even take more than one. - Share a Book - Once you are done reading the book, you can return it to the Little Library or pass it on to a friend. If you can’t bear to part with it, keep it and bring back a different book to share. - Return a Book - Do your part and keep the Little Library stocked with books, you can donate any of your old favorites. Pay it Forward!!!! - Little Free Library is a movement started by Todd Bol of Hudson and Rick Brooks of Madison in 2010, and has grown to include little libraries in dozens of countries. Little Free Library’s mission is to: - Promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide. - Foster a sense of community and connection as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
