ROCHESTER, Minn.- More Little Free Libraries are popping up in our area and around the globe with more than 65,000 in all 50 states and 84 countries, and Rochester resident Margaret Dalen is just one of thousands taking part in this book exchange program.
Despite new technology, Margaret says many people still crave the traditional hard copies, and she's happy she can help provide access to books outside of the Rochester Public Library.
“I know a lot of people read digitally they have their kindles. I just never do that because I love to hold a book,” Dalen said.
Dalen says she will do anything to increase literacy in her community.
