Patricia Gangwer, Richmond’s Free Little Libraries
With only three public library branches serving a population of over 100,000 in more than 33 square miles, the broadening of access to quality books and information is vital to the healthy revitalization of the city and its residents. This is the case in Richmond, California; where Patricia Gangwer has created Richmond’s Free Little Libraries, a project that places “take one, leave one” book boxes around the city. With the help of a local steward for literature upkeep and artists to decorate the boxes, underserved neighborhoods in the city will thrive.
