Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services (PPCS) is continuing its mission to increase access to books for the community. On Tuesday, August 30, PPCS employees gathered to dedicate the new Live Better Little Free Library installed on the north side of their property near the electric vehicle charging station.
A year ago, PPCS launched Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library for children in Pierce and Pepin counties. Now, residents of all ages can access the Live Better Little Free Library 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Visitors are encouraged to browse and borrow from the available books and contribute their own. PPCS staff will act as stewards of the Little Free Library.
“There are currently over 150,000 Little Free Libraries in over 100 countries,” said Nate Boettcher, PPCS president and CEO. "Literacy is one of the ways we ensure a strong, thriving community and we’re proud to be part of this initiative to improve access to books in our region.”
The Live Better Little Free Library is registered as Charter Number 150586. Other Little Free Libraries can be found using their mobile app or website www.littlefreelibrary.org.
