About lil’brary


JOE lil’brary is an invitation to share the joy of reading with children. Kids can simply reach in and take what interests them; when they are done, they can return them to the lil’brary. If anyone has a book or two that they think other children in the class/group would enjoy, they can just pop it into the lil’brary located at their school or organisation.
