The library is part of the free “Take a Book, Leave a Book” outreach program. Children and adults visiting headquarters, or who live nearby, can take a book from an eye-catching mini library. They are free to sit outside and read, read inside while waiting for accompanying adults to transact business, or take the book home. Visitors can also leave age and theme appropriate books in the mini library. The Little Library, which includes books in English and Spanish, has proven to be very popular so far.
The program also created an opportunity to partner with local groups and organizations such as Book Harvest, the Durham County Library, Durham’s Partnership for Children, and Durham Public Schools.
