Daybreak hopes to spread the love of reading with the recent addition of four Little Free Libraries in the community. The libraries look like little homes, some even mimic the architecture of homes built in Daybreak. Residents are encouraged to explore the community visiting the various libraries in search of a good book. Most of have been placed near walking trails in the community for easy access. The concept is simple take a book and leave a book in return.
“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.”—Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Thanks to the Shorr family of Founders’ Park Village for coordinating a book drive late last year, the libraries are stocked with a variety of books for the entire household.

Little Free Library, is a worldwide movement to promote literacy and the love of reading by incorporating free book exchanges. There are more than 36,000 Little Free Library locations across the world that share approx. 9.3 million books annually. In 2009, Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin, came up with the free library concept as a tribute to his mother, a former school teacher who loved to read.
In Daybreak there are several Little Free Library locations, find them all on the Little Free Library map.
We are looking for volunteers to facilitate stocking the Little Free Library locations with books on a regular basis. If you are interested in participating, please email [email protected].
The four new Little Free Libraries were donated by the developer of Daybreak, Kennecott Land, in coordination with LiveDAYBREAK and the Daybreak HOA.
