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.

From Hiawatha Elementary School Newsletter — 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.
