Twin City Players Launches Little Free Library

Twin City Players Launches

Little Free Library at TCP Playhouse

 

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front-yard book exchanges number more than 100,000 around the world in over 100 countries — from Italy to Brazil to Japan. Now, a new Little Free Library® (LFL) at Twin City Players, 600 W. Glenlord Road, St. Joseph, Michigan, will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.

Twin City Players’ Little Free Library will consist of scripts and other theatre books available for free use for those in the community interested in theatre performing arts. Those enjoying the items are encouraged to contribute their own theatre items for others to read. The library is located in the Twin City Players’ campus parking lot. The TCP library was built and installed by volunteers Bruce Banghart, John Taylor, Cindy Jakeway, and Larry Nielsen.

“Our Little Free Library isn't just for Twin City Players, it's something we hope students, actors, directors, and theater lovers throughout the area can use and enjoy. We hope that this Little Free Library will help us share our passion for the art of theater with the whole community. Perhaps the books in this library will inspire magnificent productions in the future”, says Andrew Glisson, President of Twin City Players’ Board of Directors.

Little Free Library® is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and improves book access by fostering neighborhood book-exchange boxes around the world. LFL received the 2020 World Literacy Award and has been recognized by the Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation, and others for its dedication to expanding book access for all.
