 The opening of the Little Free Library at United Way offices is part of our effort to raise awareness about the summer slide - when children, especially from low-income homes, risk falling behind in their educational skills. By reading just 6 books - and 20 minutes a day - children can avoid the negative effects of the summer slide - and be on track for the next school year - and success in life! We encourage donations directly to LFLs - and we are also accepting new age-appropriate books for children 5-14 years old - or K-8th grade through Friday, May 24. Check out locations of LFLs throughout our community at UnitedWayErie.org/LittleFreeLibraries
