There are hundreds of Little Free Libraries in Buffalo, where children can borrow books. With so many children learning through virtual instruction, the WNY Teacher Residency Program

Residents spent the evening sorting book bundles and devising a plan to distribute children’s books to different neighborhoods within the city and north of Buffalo. WNY teacher residents will continue to fill the Little Free Libraries.
