Little Free Library (LFL) concept was originally developed by a Rotarian in Wisconsin. A retired realestate person in Roswell, GA adopted the concept for the North Fulton area, who made a presentation to the Rotary Club of North Fulton. Another citizen of Alpharetta read about the concept and had inquired to the Alpharetta Parks department about partnering with someone to provide free books to the public. Our club developed a partnership with the Alpharetta citizen, where we built 3 Little Free Library's, worked with the Parks department to find adequate spots to erect the structures, while the Alpharetta citizen maintains the books in each Library. This is a very sustainable process and very much easier to manage, for the Alpharetta citizen is now an active member of the Rotary Club of North Fulton. As the city parks continue to evolve, the LFL's provide outstanding reading material for both adults and children, thus contributing to the improvement of anyone's literacy level. Future plans are to place at least one LFL per year for the next 3 years.
