THE OZCF LITTLE FREE LIBRARY

Take a book – Share a book

Idea:

The concept of “The OZCF Little Free Library” is to inspire readers and expand book access to everyone. The goal is to have a book available for every reader, irrespective of their age. With no limitations like time, space, or privilege, we believe people are empowered when they read a book that connects to them personally.

How will this work?

  • 1)    24/7 book access: sharing box will be open 7

days a week, 24 hours a day and is accessible to everyone

  • 2)    Fostering new Little Free Libraries: this concept educates and guides volunteers to establish similar libraries elsewhere
  • 3)      Granting books to all ages: the library includes books for all ages
  • 4)      Diversity: part of the project is to represent diverse voices to promote understanding and inclusion in readers
  • 5)      Improve literacy: studies have repeatedly shown that books in the hands of children have a meaningful impact on improving literacy – the more the books, the more likely a child will learn and love to read!

Where will it be?

OZCF grounds – accessible to everyone

How do we make this?

This is an OZCF youth initiative. To include our very own personal touch, the youth committee plans on purchasing raw material and building this library themselves over a weekend (of course, with the guidance of some experienced people in the community who do woodwork) – but rest assured, it will be a youth made project!

How much will this cost?

The OZCF Youth suggests this to be a fund raiser event and for it to be advertised as such. With a target of $1000, the share box and a bunch of books for all ages can be purchased. All surplus donations will go to the OZCF for maintenance of the OZCF Little Free Library as needed.  

Please feel free to donate cash or books on Zoroastrianism that you think will benefit this project. For more details you can email us on ozcfyouthevents@gmail.com or call Armita Bhesania at 647-391-0306
