There is a “Little Free Library” right in the heart of Downtown Statesville where you can choose a book to take home at no cost! The concept is simple; leave a book that you have finished, and pick up a new one to try. The result is a “borrow and share” library, creating an ever-changing collection of books in Downtown Statesville. The 2014 Miss Statesville Ashtin Gill took on this project to support her platform of promoting literacy.

Little Free Libraries have popped up around the globe since the movement began in 2009, when Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin sparked the idea that eventually grew into a nonprofit organization and created an official network of Little Free Libraries. Each official location bears a plaque from the parent organization, and Downtown Statesville’s Pecan Park little library certifies it as number 16,176.

We now have three Little Free Libraries in Statesville! In addition to Pecan Park in Downtown Statesville, there is also one in Garfield Park and at the Bentley Community Center playground. Next time you go for a walk, take the route that leads to a Little Free Library, pick up a book, and read!
