This week, Success Won’t Wait started the process of visiting and filling every Little Free Library in the State of Delaware! Last year, we learned about the program when we were approached by District 2 New Castle County Council Member Dee Durham to help stock 15 brand new Little Free Library boxes in New Castle County. But, there are so many more that are already established! And, with kids home for the summer, the boxes could all use an infusion of fresh books… so this week, we got busy, visiting and filling (or swapping out) books at six local Little Free Libraries in the Pike Creek and Hockessin, Delaware areas.
If you are unfamiliar with the group, The Little Free Library organization is the world’s largest creator of those oh-so-useful small wooden book-sharing boxes that you find in parks, community open spaces or in front of homes. The premise behind the Little Free Libraries is that anyone can take a book or give a book.
