Little Free Library: Pride Stories

Tue, June 14 - Thu, June 30

This June and beyond, we’re celebrating the people, art, and experiences that bring pride and joy to our community. We’ve partnered with local organization, The Center, to develop a list of books for our Little Free Library that showcase stories about Pride month and members of the LGBTQIA community. While visiting Bradley Fair this June, we encourage you to connect, explore, and learn by stopping by our LFL in front of Jos. A. Bank.
