Big Thicket National Preserve joins the Little Free Library movement

KOUNTZE — Today, Big Thicket National Preserve joined the Little Free Library movement, an important nation-wide effort to make books available to everyone. Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.


With financial support from our partner, Western National Parks Association, preserve staff have established a Little Free Library in the parking lot of the park visitor center. Visitors are welcome to peruse the free books and take one with them to read at their leisure. “We hope that this free book exchange will encourage visitors to use to park in new ways. There are many river banks, picnic areas, and other peaceful places around the park for everyone to use. Grab a book and discover new things in your national park. ” stated Big Thicket National Preserve Superintendent Wayne Prokopetz.
