Hiawatha LFL in the News

A link to the arctlie about the one painted by the Elementary school kids — A few students from each fifth grade class were given the opportunity to help design and paint a “Little Free Library”. A former Hiawatha student is involved in working with this project where a wooden box is filled with books where anyone in the community can stop by, pick up a book or two and bring back another to share.

Little Free Libraries – Fun to Build, Fun to Use! — An article about the project featured on homefixated.com written by Rich Dana

Youtube version of CBS 2 news story — HIAWATHA, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- An international trend is now in Hiawatha. The town now has three little free libraries, two at Guthridge Park, and one at Tucker Park. The project was spearheaded by 24-year-old CJ Flynn, an avid reader who saw his first little free library a few years ago in Iowa City. Flynn got a lot of help from the community, even having fifth-graders paint one of the libraries. A fourth little free library will come to Hiawatha soon, but so far, a location hasn't been set.
