Here we grow again! We are pleased to announce that our Little Free Libraries project — dubbed the Open Book Exchange — continues to expand this month with a foray into Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood.
What exactly is the Open Book Exchange? Well, it’s one of the projects we are most excited about here at Bluebird Books. We build colorful handmade Book Boxes (using reclaimed materials whenever possible), fill them with donated books, and install them in public places throughout the Tampa Bay area. Passersby are encouraged to take a book, or leave a book, in free literary trade. It’s that simple!
The Book Box in Seminole Heights (our fourth installation in a year) will be dedicated on Monday, Sept. 23, 2013 with a casual community event beginning at approximately 4:30 p.m. Come out and donate books, or find some to take home, and help us celebrate tangible literary treasures. Look for us near E. Frierson Ave. and 12th Street, across from Giddens Park.
