United Way Cuts Ribbon For Merced County's "Little Free Library"

In The District 2/14/2020

United Way of Merced County’s Little Free Library’s Ribbon Cutting

The ribbon was cut for the opening of the United Way of Merced County‘s Little Free Library! Little Free Library book-sharing boxes play an essential role by providing 24/7 access to books (and encouraging a love of reading!) in areas where books are scarce.

The ability to secure a good job is tied directly to one’s ability to read and process information. Book-sharing improves literacy rates, grows children’s imaginations, and puts books in the hands of those who may not be able to afford them.
