A movement is underway to install small community libraries in neighborhoods across the country. That movement is now taking hold in Topeka. The Little Free Libraries program encourages people to install libraries in their own front yards -- where anyone can take or donate books. KPR’s Stephen Koranda visited the first such neighborhood library in Topeka. Kimberly Daugherty (DOOR-tee) and her husband James installed one of these tiny libraries - a two-foot-by-two-foot box - in their front yard. Now they're working to expand the project across the community.
That’s Kimberly Daugherty talking with KPR’s Stephen Koranda. The Daughertys have partnered with a local organization to expand the program by building and installing 20 libraries throughout Topeka. They’re now accepting applications. You can find the application by visiting our website, KPR.KU.EDU. That’s KPR.KU.EDU. You can also follow Stephen Koranda on Twitter... @KPRKORANDA
