A Little Free Library is coming to Unity Park!

On Saturday, June 1st at 10:30 AM, we'll have a small parade of the Library into the park, an official "welcome" read, and then local children will unwrap the Little Library! A special performance of story-themed songs and story telling by Actor/Musician Joe Boersma will follow the unveiling. Friends of Logan Square Library and UPAC will have activities for the crowd, and free books and goodies for children. And, the first 50 children to bring a book to donate will receive a special commemorative Little Library button!

 Please bring ONE children's book for the Little Library, in English or Spanish, as both a donation and to signal their commitment to seeing the LIttle Library grow and become a community resource.

 The Little Library at Unity Park is a project of the Unity Park Advisory Council , and is made possible through the generosity of The Chicago Reader, Upcycling Colors, Zosimo Melendez, Monarch Thrift Shop, State Representative Will Guzzardi, and State Senator Iris Y. Martinez. If you wish to donate books for the Little Library, please contact UPAC, or bring them to State Senator Iris Y. Martinez's office on a Wednesday.
