One Sartell neighborhood is giving their Little Free Library a new use during the COVID-19 outbreak, and we think it's a great idea.

Little Free Libraries are meant for housing books you can check out and read as well as make a donation to. Instead, during the COVID-19 outbreak, the LFL is being used to store food donations and household items that neighbors may be in need of. Neighbors are encouraged to take what they need and donate if they are able.

There's a sign on the library that reads "PLEASE, take what you need. Save some for others. Feel free to donate. Help your community. LOVE."

We're keeping the location and name of the Little Free Library private because it was posted on a private neighborhood page for people in that neighborhood. But, it's a great idea and we encourage others to find fun ways to help out the community during the COVID-19 outbreak.
