Book Bungalows

32 Book Bungalows have been adopted and distributed to good homes.   The Bungalows become the property of the individual or group that takes them and it will be their responsibility to maintain the books and the bungalow.

The Town of High River is helping to prepare a map that shows all the locations of the Book Bungalows. The map is available on our website at http://litforlife.com/in-the-community.php and soon to be on the Town of High River’s site and other appropriate locations. Do you already own a little free library?  Would you like to be added to the map? Please contact the office with your address and contact information.

A Book Bungalow and a Board Game Box will be set up on between Evelyn’s Memory Lane and Colossis downtown for public use.  The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee has decorated this Bungalow.  On September 8th, International Literacy Day, we will be launching the Book Bungalows.  Ribbon Cutting at 11:30 am with cake to follow. (2:00 pm)   Come down celebrate the offical launch.  (118 4 Ave SW, High River)

Highwood HighSchool Grade 10 Construction class constructed the Bungalows as a school project and did an awesome job. We are excited to partner with the young people at that school.   High River Home Hardware is a generous donor to this project as well as the High River Rotary, and the High River Vitality Fund. We also have had help from so many volunteers in our community. Delbert Moncrieff donated his time and truck to transport the bungalows to the Culture Centre.  The High River Firemen and Fred Stegmeier came out and helped move them into the Culture Centre.

Thank you Delbert

Awesome Volunteers

    1. Hi Nicole
      Not sure if you received an answer on this. The funding for the Book Bungalows was only for High River. Sorry! We receive project funding to do specific activities. I wish we could do this right across the MD.
