The Little Free Libraries Project Comes to Syracuse

I arrived at the Warehouse this weekend not knowing quite what to expect; I was looking forward to a day of conversation and preparing to create Little Free Libraries in Syracuse’s Near West Side. My head is still buzzing with ideas, hopes and designs for the project. The Syracuse Little Free Library Project is a collaboration between the School of Information Studies, the College of Visual & Performing Arts, and the Near West Side Initiative. As part of the interdisciplinary team on the project, I’m excited to be working with people outside of the iSchool, and those inside it too!

Syracuse Little Free Libraries Project Launches

The Little Free Libraries Project is a collaborative project between Syracuse University’s iSchool, the College of Visual and Performance Arts (VPA) and residents of Syracuse’s Near Westside (NWS). This project grew out of a late summer tweet from Jill Hurst-Wahl, incoming Director of the Library and Information Science graduate program at the iSchool. She posted a link about Little Free Libraries being built in Wisconsin and wondered if we could do the same here in Syracuse.
