Grace Church’s First Little Free Library
By April 11, 2013 0 950•
The power of a good book and the kindness of others come together with Grace Church’s first ever Little Free Library.
The first Little Free Library in Washington D.C., located outside of Grace Church and Georgetown Ministry Center, was created in an effort to promote literacy, give people easy access to new reading material, and build a stronger sense of community.
Opened on April 3, the effort was coordinated by Georgetown Ministry Center, Grace Church, and the AARP of District Columbia State Office.
The book exchange allows guests of Georgetown Ministry Center, people attending church services or the school, as well as guests and community members that visit the church grounds, to drop off books they want to donate and pick up new books that others have donated.
You can drop by the Little Free Library outdoor kiosk at Grace Church at 1041 Wisconsin Avenue NW.
