We do this in 4 specific ways:
- Partner with littlefreelibrary.org. Libraries placed through Little Free Library KC are also officially registered with littlefreelibrary.org.
- Partner with local businesses, organizations and individuals to acquire funding and underwriting to lower the costs of Little Free Libraries KC.
- Partner with the Kansas City Woodworkers’ Guild to build Little Free Libraries KC.
- Partner with the community to seek local homes and stewards to care for Little Free Libraries locally in the Kansas City metro, the states of Kansas and Missouri and in other Midwest locations.
Partner with littlefreelibrary.org
Little Free Library KC believes in, supports and exists to extend the mission and vision of littlefreelibrary.org to Kansas City. We do this by registering all of the libraries that we place with littlefreelibrary.org. When a library is registered with littlefreelibrary.org they are numbered, registered, mapped and their story is journaled on their blog.
Partner with local businesses, organizations and individuals
As a non-profit we seek opportunities for local businesses, organizations and individuals to provide funding to underwrite the costs of purchasing Little Free Libraries KC.
- promote literacy and the love of reading by funding free book exchanges,
- build a sense of community as skills, creativity, and wisdom are shared across generations and
- help reach our ultimate goal of endowing more than 2,500 libraries around the world–topping Andrew Carnegie!
Partner with the Kansas City Woodworkers’ Guild
Little Free Library KC partners with the Kansas City Woodworkers’ Guild (KCWG). The KCWG offers a Little Free Library Special Interest Group (LFL SIG) to its members. The purpose of the LFL SIG is to create new Little Free Library designs and prototypes. The KCWG uses these designs and prototypes to create lots of libraries. The Kansas City Woodworkers’ Guild is the preferred builder of Little Free Library KC.
Partner with the community
Ultimately it is people like you that makes the Little Free Library project a success. Please let us know if you would like to purchase a Little Free Library KC and become a steward. Become part of something bigger than yourself today.
