Little Red Bookshelf Sites

The Little Red Bookshelf is an early literacy effort sponsored by United Way of Southwest Minnesota that places red bookshelves at key locations where children and families often visit. Shelves are filled with new or gently used donated books for children ages birth to 5th grade.  Some are available in a variety of languages .
 
Read a book there and take one home to keep! Children can enjoy the books where they are or take a book home to use. The program aims to foster a love of reading and provide access to books for all children. We currently sponsor 40 shelves in 19 communities throughout southwest Minnesota.

NOTE:  CURRENTLY SEVERAL OF OUR SHELVES ARE NOT AVAILABLE DUE TO CONTINUED COVID RESTRICTIONS. CHECK BACK FOR AN UPDATED LIST OF SHELF LOCATIONS.
