Upshur Park to get an Avengers-themed Little Free Library, celebration Saturday at the park

In what has to be one of the coolest little projects around, Disney and the Little Free Library are unveiling a Marvel Avengers: Infinity War-themed Little Free Library at Upshur Recreation Center. This little library is supported by the Mayor's office, Councilmember Brandon Todd's office, DPR and the Community Alliance for Upper Fourteenth Street (CAUFS).
The Avengers free library will be unveiled in a festive reading celebration Saturday, May 26th at 11 am at Upshur Rec Center (4300 Arkansas Ave NW), and you're invited to attend the fun.

Representatives from the Little Free Library and CAUFS have invited Mayor Muriel Bowser and Councilman Todd to speak along with Jesse Holland, author of Who is the Black Panther? and other books for young readers. Jeremy Hillman, National Board member of The Little Free Library, will also speak at the event. 

This Marvel library is one of nine specially-themed libraries around the country. These libraries will be stocked with books for two years, courtesy of Disney Publishing Worldwide and the nonprofit social enterprise FirstBook as a way to bring communities together and celebrate the power of reading through free access to books.

The concept to create these brand-new themed libraries will support Disney’s love of storytelling and Little Free Library’s mission to build community, spark creativity, and inspire young readers and their families. The Little Free Libraries will be maintained by LFL community stewards and stocked with books for two years, including such Marvel titles as The Hero’s Journey (Road to Avengers: Infinity War), The Cosmic Quest Vol. I, and many other epic stories. You can also donate your own books to the free library.
