The Tiny Library opened at The Hill campus in South Meridian in October 2018. This unique interactive learning library was created from a repurposed 320-square-foot shipping container. The Tiny Library is designed to help prepare early learners for kindergarten. Rotating collections and activities focus on the five early learning practices: talking, playing, singing, writing, and reading. In addition to board books, picture books, and Easy Readers, families can check out early literacy kits filled with curated items for different ages. The space also includes a small collection for parents and teachers. 

We want to thank the private donors, awards, and grants that helped fund this innovative community project!

Development of this project was supported by a Future of Libraries Fellowship from the American Library Association's Center for the Future of Libraries. View our Tiny Toolkit to learn about the planning and implementation process.
