FRAMINGHAM – Olivia Weiss, 7, “wanted to find a way to help create a strong sense of connection in our neighborhood,” said her dad Rich

So she created and will unveil a Little Free Library at the corner of Hillside and Cottage streets this weekend.

The library will include a wide range of genres for both kids and adults including books with neurodiverse individuals, bilingual books (currently in Portuguese and Spanish), books that reflect and honor different cultures, and more.

“We hope The Cottage Corner Little Free Library gives as much joy to its visitors as the creation of it has for our daughter,” said Rich & Laura Weiss.

“By helping her see her idea of having a Little Free Library come to life and celebrating its opening we are showing her the values of literacy, community, and lifelong learning,” said Rich Weiss.

There is a ribbon cutting for the new Little Free Library on Sunday, July 17 at 3 p.m. The Kona Ice truck will be by to treat the first 50 library patrons to free shaved ice, said the Weiss family.

There are more than a dozen Little Free Libraries in the City of Framingham.
