Representation in a Small Space

Yesterday this announcement from Howard County resident Lynn Scott caught my eye: 

Hi HoCo Families!

Have you seen the Little Free Libraries around? Another Howard County resident/friend and I are on a mission to grow and diversify those libraries through an initiative that is taking off nation-wide called Little Free Diverse Libraries. You can read more about the woman who inspired it all here:

Why Sharing Diverse Books in Little Free Libraries Matters

Our goal is to add diverse books to the existing Little Free Libraries around Howard County in order to reflect the diversity in our community. You can help!

—Follow us on Instagram (@littlefreediverselibraryhoco). We'll post as we receive books and deliver them throughout the county.

—Donate a book! Use this link.

Books will be shipped directly to us and we'll deliver to the libraries.

—Let us know about the Little Free Libraries near your house! Feel free to also share diverse books you love and we'll add them to the list

Thanks for helping us! This is especially important with schools and libraries currently closed (in-person)!


Everyone knows I’m a big fan on children’s books. I went to the list and picked out two. One of them was a favorite of mine: All Are Welcome.
