Little Free Library Grant
UELMA is pleased to award a grant to Lisa Moeller. She will head efforts to build a Little Free Library in Kearns on Eaton Way. The Little Free Library will be an asset to the neighborhood because there are no libraries within walking distance. Lisa says the library will “encourage reading, creativity, and encourage being outdoors.”
UELMA grants are still available for Little Free Libraries. UELMA will give up to $140.00 for construction, stewardship fee, signage, and an initial selection of books. The application process is very simple. You must be a UELMA member and be willing to present photos and a brief description of your Little Library at the next UELMA annual conference. The application form is available below.
