Little Free Library
El Paso Public Library Association (EPPLA) participated in the donation of a Little Free Library to the Mountain West Montessori school in El Paso, Texas on May 24, 2013. The event was attended by children and their parents who participated in the reading activities. EPPLA partnered with Lisa Lopez, a local school librarian and Ambassador of the little Free Libraries. It was thru her help that a local woodworker club got the materials to build the small  but beautiful structure. Lorena Gutiérrez, EPPLA Secretary, spearheaded the program. There were several readings by both children and parents.  They read bilingual poems.
