Little Lending Libraries

Parents reading to their children is an important way to build the parent-child relationship and also strengthens a child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and character development. This month, FEC will be placing children’s books in Little Lending Libraries in communities around the Twin Cities as a way to encourage reading to children.

We are looking for donations of new or gently used books for children of elementary school age or younger. It is important for books to be fun and have a positive message! Some of our favorite books on our #StorytimeTuesday reading list can be found at and

Donated books can be dropped off at the FEC office: 4826 Chicago Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55417. Or, we can arrange a volunteer to pick up!

Reach us by phone at 612-827-3028 OR email to coordinate.
