Network of Literacy Champions
In 2021, the Altadena Libraries are striving to strengthen their relationships with owners of local Little Free Libraries (LFLs) to help support their inventories of books and share literacy resources and programs in neighborhoods across Altadena. LFLs can become future stops for our mobile library, and partnering with the owners will allow our libraries to promote the literacy program by meeting our community and potential learners where they are. The Friends of the Altadena Library have agreed to support the LFLs with surplus donated books from their storage. One of the goals of the program is to install 2-3 new LFLs in Altadena in 2021 and host Little Launches, gathering the community and visiting the new LFLs with the bookmobile.
