Detroit - An effort to promote literacy through dollhouse-size neighborhood libraries is being highlighted in a new exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
The Little Libraries: A Collision of Art, Literacy and Community exhibit features 13 Little Free Libraries that have been transformed by local artists, including four that made from retired newspaper bins.
The exhibit is inside the Mobile Homestead at the museum at 4454 Woodward, and will run Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until April 24.

I am proud to say that your Canadian neighbours are also participating in the little free libraries initiative. I have read 3 books so far in 2016 and my renewed interest in reading was peaked again on my way into my doctors office back in January. I just thought it was the greatest place for one and an idea that can benefit the masses across all nationalities, interests and ages from 1 to 100. What a wonderful way to get our youths amd adults reading again and a great way to open the lines of communications.
