Los Hermanos Familia prides itself on being able to offer access to reading materials and books and to encourage literacy in our community.
To further assure that all students have access to reading material
Los Hermanos Familia is proud to place
FREE Little Libraries
LHF Little Libraries are placed in low socio-economic neighborhoods that we’ve identified in areas where children might not have access to books or technology.
Visitors can take a book, or leave a book for free. Best of all, the Little Libraries are accessible to these children and adults and located right in their own neighborhood.
And, during the pandemic, this service especially filled a need.
Our first LHF Little Library was placed at the Optismit Boys & Girls Club facing East on Hartford St. between 3301 Cornell St. and Colgate Street.
The second LHF Little Library is located
at Carmona Elementary at 1910 Cesar E. Chavez Dr.
In keeping with our mission of environmental stewardship, Los Hermanos Familia's Little Libraries are also eco-friendly! Our easy-care, composite libraries are assembled with plastic lumber made out of recycled milk jugs, and will last for years!
LHF is planning to place two more libraries in the near future.
