In the month of July I'm looking forward to donating $0.50 for every comment to the international Little Free Library program. As some of you may know, I worked throughout this year to bring a Little Free Library to Latimer, Iowa and I'm happy to say that we installed the Little Free Library at the beginning of June.

My love for my community and passion for childhood literacy is what drove me to set up a Little Free Library in the community of Latimer. Reading is really important to me and raising my kids. My kids and I read every day and always have books around. The town of Latimer doesn't have a library and I know there are many kids in town that don't have an opportunity to go to a library, especially in the summer. So I thought bringing a Little Free Library to Latimer would be great for all the youth of the community, and for the adults who love to read too.
And through this month's Comment for a Cause program I hope to help other small communities that don't have libraries of their own bring a Little Free Library to their town through the Little Free Library Small Town Initiative. I was very fortunate to receive support from Post Alpha-Bits cereal and the Latimer City Council when setting up my Little Free Library, but I know every small community might not have access to those resources. So that is why I'm supporting the Small Town Initiative this month.
If you are ever in the Latimer, Iowa, stop by and visit our community's Little Free Library. It is located in Downtown Latimer on the west-side of Akir Street. Do you have a Little Free Library in your community? Be sure to Comment for a Cause all month long to help out this world-wide cause!
