Among the amenities of our neighborhood are four Little Free Libraries, which have proved very popular.

If you’d like one at your home, go to littlefreelibrary.org for information. The city’s Neighborhoods Committee has authorized the MLNA to partially pay for them from our city grant fund, so contact an MLNA board member if you are interested.
