The newest way to access books in the City of Scottsdale will become a reality next month, as the first Books2Go structure will be unveiled April 11 at 11am at Chaparral Dog Park.
Books2Go micro-libraries will be installed in City of Scottsdale parks and other convenient locations to provide a “take one, leave one” opportunity for those seeking books to read. The first installation will take the shape of a dog house to reflect its location in the dog park.
Each Books2Go installation is being designed by Jim Nance as part of the Library’s partnership with Intel and Experience Matters.
The Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library provided funding for the construction and supplies of the Books2Go structures, while the initial books were funded through a donation by the Scottsdale Area Association of Realtors. The project is a collaboration between the Library, the Scottsdale Parks Department and the Scottsdale Facilities Department.
Please join us on April 11 for a ribbon cutting ceremony at Chaparral Dog Park, and stay tuned for more Books2Go installations in 2017 currently planned at Mountain View Park and Indian School Park.
