The Free Book Buggie

This week’s speakers Debbie and Sue are founders of the non-profit https://thefreebookbuggie.org/ who donated 500  books for our four Little Free Libraries.

The Free Book Buggie is the brainchild of Debbie Beck, who on a trip to Brazil with her daughter found the inspiration for The Buggie as she was traveling along the southern coast. Stopping in a small, colonial town just outside of Rio, she noticed a multicolored van that was filled with books, and its owner sitting on a chair beside a table full of books. Seeing the attention the van received, especially from children, Debbie realized her desire to bring that same excitement of reading back home to Minnesota.  Since June 2018, and in collaboration with over 90 community groups and organizations, TFBB has distributed almost 100,000 books and impacted the lives of thousands of children in the Twin Cities area.
