Another year full of mini libraries

2016 came to an end with a fantastic balance regarding Public Mini Libraries. We have seen the transformation power that they have on people, families, kids, granparents connecting with the younger ones trough books and storytelling. Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come, and 2017 we are preparing our plans to keep on spreading these little magic houses around the city and -why not- the whole country.

Last year we've installed 6 new minilibraries around Rosario city, attracting schools and students and getting them engage in the process. This positive energy also got attention from media, influencers and others that inspired other cities far away, including Bariloche (Patagonia), 3000km away. Therefore we have developed a set of tools, manuals and instructions which is completely open to everyone at no cost, so everyone can replicate the power of the Minilibraries in their own city or town. Making books accessible to everyone, having activities to do in public space, making parks nicer, colorful and happy are great ways to engage citizens into active participation. And that's the beginning of a solution revolution instead of a passive 'complaining mode'. 

Thanks to your support we made another year possible and we keep on growing, making possitive impact in a world that needs good examples, inspiration, peaceful and safe environment for all and equality. Lets keep on moving in that direction together!
