Ipswich is a close-knit community with a growing network of Little Free Libraries. We have at least seven libraries built and maintained by our residents all around town, and they serve as accessible, community-driven resources for residents of all ages. Currently many of the books available in these libraries are in need of refreshing.
I hope to provide a diverse range of new books that inspire, motivate, and uplift readers by polling Ipswich residents to ask "what was the last book you read that left you feeling positively delighted and happy?" I will then take these community suggestions to purchase and distribute happy and uplifting books to all of our Little Free Libraries.
We will encourage readers to return the books back to the Little Free Libraries when they're finished reading so that the impact continues and can reach as many people as possible.
