Little Free Library Book Drive

By: Gabi Rutherford

Have you ever seen those little boxes that look like houses and wondered what they were? They are called the Little Free Library, and they are weather-proof structures where people can pick up free books to read. The General Honors 101 class is having a book drive for the Little Free Library. This Little Free Library was built by WIU-QC AmeriCorps volunteers and will be set up in the children’s playground in Ben Butterworth Parkway, just down the road from the Quad Cities campus. The General Honors class is asking for books for kids and parents. You can drop off books that are in good condition at the Little Free Library bins that are located in the Quad Cities Complex in front of the Admissions Desk and Student Services, in front of the Library, in front of the Writing Center, in Riverfront at the main entrance and in the Atrium, and Building B by the elevator. The book drive will go through May 4th, 2018, and the Little Free Library will be installed soon after. If you have any questions, please contact Gabriele Rutherford at or Taylor Cox at
