WHY:
To unveil the Foothill Area Free Library and to celebrate National Read Across America Day with a children from Montague Elementary School.

DETAILS:
LAPD Foothill Area in conjunction with a local non-profit organization, A Chance for Children, have partnered to establish a Little Free Library inside the Foothill Area Station lobby.  This library functions as an educational and outreach tool to children and community members in the Foothill vicinity and builds a sense of community, while promoting literacy and a love of books.

The Little Free Library is a gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories.  In its most basic form, it’s like a shelf full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book and contribute another one to share.  The library is registered in a national registry where community members can locate it online.  All books are free for children of all ages and will be listed by age group reading levels.

It is hoped the Little Free Library will have a positive influence on community quality of life and provide a place for neighbors to meet and get to know each other through “community in the station     programs.”  LAPD Cadets will serve as stewards of the library to help teach important life skills, ownership of a project and the importance of community.  Additionally, police officers will be involved in providing book-reading programs at the station with local schools.  

More information about opportunities with the Little Free Library is available at www.littlefreelibrary.org. The books will be re-stocked through generous donations of non-profit organizations, community members and police officers.

Members of the media interested in attending should contact Detective Stacy Vince with the Foothill Area Office at (818) 756-8860.
