Fahrenheit 451

Little Libraries at Grand Park

WHAT’S PINK, STANDS ON ONE LEG, AND ISN’T A FLAMINGO? Grand Park’s Little Libraries encourages all to drop off a good book and/or pick one up to take home. May we suggest this year’s Big Read title, Fahrenheit 451? Little Libraries are these ridiculously adorable pink dollhouses that have been filled with a variety of books for all ages. You can find these pink dollhouses near Starbucks, on Olive Court, near the Metro station, and across from City Hall. Some things just don’t need much fuss in life. Lending libraries are one of them. They operate on 3 basic principles: 1. You take a book…or…You leave a book 2. You read the book (preferably on some park furniture or under a leafy Grand Park tree)…then 3. You do it all over again Find’em, fill’em, love’em! More info: grandparkla.org/littlelibraries
