While the Richardson Public Library only has one branch, the nonprofit Friends of the Richardson Library is working to increase the availability of books throughout the city by giving away Little Free Library kits.Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that increases book access to readers through a “take a book, leave a book” free exchange. LFLs usually take the shape of mailboxes or birdhouses and are often placed in areas with high foot traffic. There are more than 100,000 LFLs worldwide in 50 states and more than 100 countries, including at least 43 registered in Richardson. Read more at Community Impact.
