Little Free Library Promotes Leisure Reading at Mays Landing Campus

Rewrites, the student literary magazine, has purchased a Little Free Library for the Mays Landing Campus.

What is a Little Free Library, you may ask? A Little Free Library is a free book exchange where anyone from the community can take books to read or return books to be shared with someone else. The movement was started by Todd Bol and Rick Brooks “to promote literacy and the love of reading” and “to foster a sense of community and connection.” Their goal is to build more than 2,510 libraries around the world––the number of “real” libraries built by 19th Century philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

The Little Free Library is located outside the bookstore at the Mays Landing Campus.

Our Little Free Library has taken up residence outside the bookstore in J-Building. Please help us keep the library stocked with titles of interest to students, faculty and staff. Take books that you are interested in and encourage others to do the same.
