The Little Free Library movement began several years ago where communities around the world began installing small outdoor bookcases to house books for people within a community, where people could take a book and leave a book in exchange. There are many libraries in the Tri-Cities area sponsored by different organizations.
In 2015 / 2016, the Tri-Cities Early Childhood Development Committee partnered with the City of Port Coquitlam to supply Little Free Libraries in Citadel Heights. They sponsored five new little libraries and PoCo Building Supplies provided supplies and construction support.
The libraries are located strategically near playgrounds, elementary schools and daycares / preschools and are hosted by local daycares / preschools and citizens who continue to be stewards of these libraries.
