Summer is a time for reading and the outdoors, and Little Free Libraries are a great way to scratch both itches at once. Little Free Libraries are nano-sized libraries found around the country, and there are plenty in the Chippewa Valley. The program’s website,, has a map featuring many in the area, but it’s also great summer fun to get out, explore, and find them on your own. Bring a book, take a book, and spread the words. If you’re interested in setting up your own Little Free Library, check out their website to learn more.
