Natick Free Little Library Community Build
July 7 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On July 7th and 9th,10 Natick families will have the opportunity to participate in a free
workshop at the Morse Institute Library to build and take home their own Little Free Library.
The Natick Little Free Library Community Build will bring Natick families and neighbors together
during the summer reading season and take them to step by step through the process of building and
completing and installing their own Little Free Library (LFL). Participants can expect a virtual
orientation session on July 7, where they’ll learn safety tips for construction, how to use their
LFL as a tool for neighborhood engagement, and hear from an LFL builder and elementary
school teacher in Medellin, Colombia. The LFL construction will be on July 9 at the Morse
Institute Library and will be facilitated by a local carpenter, DIYer, and educator Farid Quraishi.
This workshop is family-friendly for anyone comfortable with using a hammer and screwdriver
and requires no previous building experience. All LFLs will include registration on the official LFL
This community volunteer-run workshop is being held with support from the Natick Center
Cultural District (NCCD) and Morse Institute Library. Each LFL has a value of $240, which is
being made available free of charge to participants thanks to the generous financial sponsorship
of Natick Cultural Council, Mathworks, and Eversource.
Households interested in participating can register to participate at LINK HERE. Any household
in Natick committed to maintaining a library in front of their home, especially for families with
children in grades K-12 are encouraged to participate. Participation is limited to 10 families and
consideration will be given to geographic diversity around Natick, so those interested are
encouraged to register as soon as possible by June 20.
