We are thrilled to announce that the Children’s Communication Center’s Little Free Library (LFL) trio is now on the world map!

What is a Little Free Library?

Thank you, Little Free Library,  for explaining about your organization!

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.

Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

Who Dedicated the Little Ones Rock LFLs?

In 2017, this Center donated the LFL trio to the City of Tallahassee’s Park and Recreation Department at Winthrop Park’s playground.

The libraries are dedicated to the children and families of our community.

The dedication occurred during our 2017 events for Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) and Take Your Parents to the Playground.

Why a Little Free Library?

When our Director and Founder, Lori Savage Grayson, is asked why she promotes campaigns related to literacy, she responds by explaining the benefits of early exposure to words, both spoken and written, on a child’s language development.

Since language is the foundation for literacy and learning, a stronger language foundation culminates with increased success at school and in academics.

Our Little Free Library trio houses books for birth through grand/parents!

How Does the LFL work?

When you first visit our Little Ones Rock LFL you may not have planned to share a book. No problem, please do not hesitate to borrow a book!

During your next visit, you can share a book or books to our Little Ones Rock LFL trio. We share books for all ages, birth to grands, to support family reading!

We suggest keeping books in your vehicle so when you drop by to play at Winthrop Park, your little ones can share and borrow a book or two.

More Language, Literacy and Learning Campaigns

In addition to the LFLs, this Center created Little Ones Rock hand-painted rock campaign. Again, focusing on a family activity that promotes language, literacy, and learning!

Our Philanthropy Shares work with you, the community, to collect books for local fundraisers eager to put new books in the hands of children and families.
