Little Free Library launches Read in Color initiative in Denver

The Little Free Library is launching its Read in Color diverse books initiative in Denver.

DENVER — The Little Free Library is launching the Read in Color initiative in Denver.

The initiative, which launched two years ago after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, aims to bring more diverse voices to the little libraries, according to Executive Director Greig Metzger.

There will be a ribbon-cutting to launch the initiative at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Park Hill Station Apartments.

Leadership from BookGive and Little Free Library nonprofits will be in attendance, as well as author Nyasha Williams and residents of Park Hill Station.

More information about the Little Free Library can be found here.

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Its mission is to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers and expanding book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Libraries.

The group's vision is to have a Little Free Library in every community and a book for every reader. The organization believes all people are empowered when the opportunity to discover a personally relevant book to read is not limited by time, space, or privilege.
