EWDC Executive Director, Jordi Hutchinson on the partnership, “In partnership with Little Free Library, and by working with amazing organizations like CentroNia, we will be putting thousands of diverse books out into 21 new book-sharing boxes across the city. That’s thousands of opportunities to give a child a chance to see themselves on the page or hear their story told in a positive and inspiring way.”
