Thanks to a $25,000 donation for Little Libraries made by the Wal-Mart Foundation to the City of Green Bay Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department, there will now be additional reading opportunities accessible throughout many parks & neighborhoods in Green Bay.
Little Libraries are for all ages to have the opportunity to access books and be able to pass on that ability to others by “Giving a Book, Taking a Book”. Twenty eight Little Libraries will be placed throughout Green Bay by spring 2014 with the first sixteen being installed by Oct. 21st, 2013.
The donation will also be utilized for programming in 2014. Examples include, Mayor Jim Schmitt’s Read and Feed Food Drive, Parks & Recreations Playground program’s “Book of the Week” and Neighborhood Associations Reading in the Park nights.
