HAC hots Take A Look- Find a Book project

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -
This is a news release from the Hattiesburg Arts Council

Little Free Libraries (LFL) are a community movement in the United States and worldwide that offers free books housed in small containers to members of the local community. They are also referred to as community book exchanges, book trading posts, pop-up libraries, and noox, amongst other terms. It's a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.

This is where you, the artist, come in! You create the box! Following the simple dimensions and criteria found at www.littlefreelibrary.org, Either you or the Hattiesburg Arts Council will find an approved location for your LFL to live. Interested participants are asked to register by emailing the hattiesburgartscouncil@gmail.com by December 31, 2014. Deadline for delivering a completed LFL is February 1, 2015 at the Hattiesburg Cultural Center, 723 North Main Street. These creative, interactive sculptures will be displayed at the Take A Look/Find A Book Exhibit before being permanently installed and stocked at approved locations around the community.

On February 7, 2015, the Take A Look/Find A Book Exhibit will showcase these interactive sculptures to the public at the Hattiesburg Cultural Center along with the Sylvia Moore Exhibit and art making for all ages.

It's fun, creative, increases literacy, builds community and helps promote your work as an artist! To learn more about the Hattiesburg Arts Council visit our website: www.HattiesburgArtsCouncil.org TODAY!
