University of Minnesota: Introducing Goldy Little Free Libraries
Goldy-branded maroon-and-gold Little Free Libraries were recently installed near Rarig Center on the West Bank, the St. Paul Student Center, and at the Robert J. Jones Urban Research Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC).
The Little Free Libraries were built by University Construction and the University’s Sign Shop, while books were donated by University Libraries staff and members of the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries. Staff at UROC are using the Little Free Libraries to engage the North Minneapolis community.
