The Bourbonnais Public Library is excited to partner with the Village of Bourbonnais to bring to the community a second location for a “Little Free Library”. The Little Free Library is located in front of the Police Department (near the Municipal Center pond). A big thank you to our Friends of the Bourbonnais Library volunteer organization for making this project possible!
Library Director Kelly McCully, states “The Little Free Library is an extension of the Bourbonnais Public Library’s mission: Connecting our community with the resources to grow, learn, and discover. It is a way for our community to interact with books, and it promotes literacy throughout The Village of Bourbonnais and surrounding areas.”
Not sure what the Little Free Library is? Here’s some info: Our Little Free Library will house a collection of books for all ages. Residents can take a book or give a book to the LFL. The LFL is made from solid pine by Amish carpenters in Wisconsin. It is designed to withstand the changing seasons of the Midwest. The LFL was purchased through a $700 donation from the Friends of the Bourbonnais Library. “I will fill the Little Free Library weekly with an assortment of books from different genres so that anyone who visits the Little Free Library can walk away with something they want to read!” says Cassidy Steinke, Adult Services Supervisor at the library. This is the second LFL in the Bourbonnais area. The other Bourbonnais Little Free Library is located in front of the Exploration Station at the Perry Farm Park.
