A new Little Free Library at the Purdue University Early Care and Education Center is now available to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that fosters neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Through the program, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

The Purdue community is welcome to use the Little Free Library.

“One of the most successful ways to improve a child’s reading achievement is to increase their access to books,” said Candace Shaffer, director of benefits in Human Resources. “It’s our hope that this Little Free Library will bring a little more joy, a little more connection and a whole lot more books to our community.”

Donations of gently used books to help fill and maintain the library are welcome and can be dropped off at the center, located at 1568 W. State St.
