Four years ago, the Little Free Library at Horace Mann Elementary was taken down. Sadly, it was in need of repair.
To the rescue came students, Ben and Chris Jimenez. In April, they rebuilt the Little Free Library on South 58th Street between Greenfield Avenue and Lapham Street. 

“We know that Ben loves to read and we all wanted to share with others,” said his mom, Daysi Jimenez. “The library was built to help and encourage Ben to make connections with other kids in the neighborhood. Ben has a passion for reading, and they want him to share his love of reading with others.”
“The Little Free Library is a good alternative for people with sensory needs like Ben.  We are really proud of the boys for working so hard on this project.”

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.  Through Little Free Library book exchanges, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
