Little Free Library: Pride Stories

Sat, June 1 - Sun, June 30

This June and beyond, we’re celebrating the people, art, and experiences that bring pride and joy to our community. We’ve partnered with the Free Newton Library to develop a list of books for our Little Free Libraries that showcase stories about Pride month and members of the LGBTQIA community. While visiting The Street this June, we encourage you to connect, explore, and learn by stopping by our Libraries next to Hummingbird Books and Star Market to grab a fresh read and share some of your favorites, too. There are so many impactful stories that showcase the history and meaning behind Pride, and the below list of books is just a starting point. We’ll be restocking our Libraries once a week throughout the month of June and beyond, so be sure to check in every week for a fresh read.

Psst – if you stop by and have trouble finding a Pride book, DM us on Instagram, and we will let you know when new reads can be available!
