Rock 'N Read 5K Beneficiary: Little Free Libraries

Still haven't purchased your registration for the Rock 'N Read 5K? Did you know that proceeds benefit the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation? One of the great community projects that was recently launched by the Library Foundation is the Little Free Library project which was featured in an article in the Charlotte Observer. The Little Free Libraries is a community outreach effort to provide access to books in areas where the population is underserved. LFL's are small containers that house books that are free to the public.  The idea is that people will take books and either put it back when they are finished reading, or will restock the LFL with another book they have previously read. More Little Free Libraries are planned for the Charlotte area, and registrations for the Rock 'N Read 5K will help to continue to fund this great community resource.

Don't forget, we'll be giving away a registration to the Rock 'N Read 5K. Continue reading the Rock 'N Read feature posts to learn about how this event benefits the Charlotte community through the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation and find out how you could win the registration giveaway.
