Ahwatukee First-Grader Opens Her Own ‘Free Little Library,’ May be State’s Youngest Librarian

Free little libraries are popping up all over the country, but one that recently popped up in Ahwatukee is a little more unique.

According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Anna Wolcott could very well be Arizona’s youngest librarian now that she’s opened her very own free little library in a park across the street from her house last month.

Wolcott began working on the library as a kindergarten class project, according to the story. She chose to work on the library after seeing a story on television, the story said, and got excited.

Free little libraries are just what they sound like. Designed almost like a birdfeeder, eager-readers erect the small libraries in yards and parks, and place books inside, which people borrow and replace with other books, the story said.

“She really loves to read,” Wolcott’s mom, Heather Wolcott, told the newspaper. “She also likes to write books and decorate them with art. She loves art work.”

Want to visit the library yourself? It’s located in the park across from Wolcott’s home at 907 E. Mountain Vista Dr. in Ahwatukee.
