Little Free Library Comes to Bugg!

“Little Free Library” Grand Opening Celebrates Literacy at Bugg Magnet Elementary School

Sponsored by The North Carolina Retired School Personnel

Dedication Ceremony: March 3, 2020

9:30-10:00 AM

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small front- yard libraries number 60,000 around the world in 80 countries. Now, a new Little Free Library will be housed at Bugg Elementary School, 825 Cooper Road in Raleigh, will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers. 

Our Bugg families and community neighbors are welcome to attend the dedication and participate in the Take One Give One Book Program. Bugg is the first school, in Wake County, to have a Little Free Library sponsored by the North Carolina Retired Personnel. 

The Little Free Library nonprofit organization has been honored by the Library of Congress, the National Book foundation, and the American Library Association, and Reader’s Digest named them one of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America”. Each year nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries. To learn more, please visit

We are open to the donation of children and adult books for our little library. If you have any questions, please contact:
