ATLANTIC CITY — The Atlantic City Free Public Library placed its first Little Library book sharing box in O’Donnell Park on Saturday, April 22 during the Stockton Community Day Clean Up and Party.
The library also donated a reading bench to the park and plans to add additional Little Library locations in various parts of the resort.
The Little Free Library organization, a Minnesota based nonprofit, is responsible for encouraging people to place small book sharing boxes all over the world.
According to www.littlefreelibrary.org more than 150,000 registered Little Free Libraries can be found in all 50 states and on all seven continents. There are three Little Free Library locations in Atlantic City.
- O’Donnell Park
- The Atlantic City Aquarium, located at 800 N. New Hampshire Ave. in Gardner’s basin; and
- Hope for AC & New City Fellowship, located at 1812 Marmora Ave. on the westside.
Book sharing boxes are only considered part of the Little Free Library system when they have registered. Then they can be included in the Little Free Library worldwide map. Otherwise they are considered book exchanges.
