Hugh Embry Library has been awarded two Little Free Libraries (LFLs) through the Little Free Library’s Impact Program for November 2021, according to a Pasco County news release.
The program provides free Little Free Library book exchange stands to communities with members who face economic and social barriers, and find it difficult to reach the library.
Hugh Embry Library is closed for renovations, so the stands will provide books for people who are not able to travel to other libraries.
The stands will be set up in Lacoochee and Tommytown.
“The Little Free Libraries have been a special project of the Friends of Hugh Embry Library for years, already funding five LFLs,” Librarian Angelo Liranzo, said in the release. “Library team members are working with the Friends to reach our community partners in both winning communities as we await the soon-to-arrive LFLs.”
Friends of the Hugh Embry Library and library staff dedicated themselves to researching and applying for the grant opportunity to obtain the LFLs.
