Let's Cheer On Literacy!

What started as a collaboration between three community organizations - Big Thought, bcWORKSHOP, and Dallas Public Libraries – to build an initial network of 20 Little Free Libraries, has inspired people across the Dallas-Fort Worth area to join the cause. Cheerios and Little Free Library® want your help to support this grassroots effort—to improve literacy and build stronger communities—by helping them raise enough funds to put up an additional 50 Little Free Libraries throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area!

Cheerios™ believes that when people come together, anything is possible. That’s why, when we saw that extraordinary individuals were joining together to improve literacy by establishing a network of Little Free Libraries across the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we just had to cheer them on and help invest in their efforts!

Why Little Free Libraries

When children make reading an everyday activity, they not only unleash their imagination — they establish a lifelong love of learning. Our hope is to increase literacy and inspire young dreamers by building Little Free Libraries across Dallas-Fort Worth neighborhoods.

The Impact

·  $17,500 is our goal, to subsidize the construction costs of up to 50 Little Free Libraries across the Dallas-Fort Worth area

·  Any additional funds we raise (over our $17,500 goal) will go towards establishing Little Free Libraries in surrounding rural areas of Dallas and Fort Worth.

What We Need and What You Get

The money we raise will go directly towards funding subsidizing the construction costs of up to 50 Little Free Libraries across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Please help us cheer on their effort and reach our goal!
