In an effort to raise literacy in the Belmont-Cragin area, Las Damas de Belmont-Cragin has put together a list of locations where parents can find free books for their children and teens. A safe escape from phones and laptops can always be found in a good read. Visit the Little Free Libraries near the Belmont-Cragin Community (take one, leave one).

If you are interested in seeing more Little Free Libraries in the local neighborhood, we invite you to leave a comment describing what reading means to you. More information on the libraries can be found here:
