Cool! Washington Capitals Become First NHL Team to Launch Free Little Library
The Washington Capitals have launched a Little Free Library book-sharing box in the lobby at MedStar Capitals Iceplex (MCI) in Arlington with various hockey titles as well as books identified by select Capitals players as a recent read or favorite book.
It also includes titles written by Capitals alumni. Part of the organization’s Caps in School program, the library includes books for all age ranges.
The Capitals Little Free Library was painted by Washington, D.C., based artist Taylor Kampa Olson.
The Capitals are the first NHL team to launch a Little Free Library. The Little Free Library is an extension of the Caps in School Reading Program, which is designed to encourage students to add more reading to their daily activity.
