The Family and Friends of Cathy Sanchez-Cañez held the grand opening of the very first Cathy’s Little Free Library (CLFL).

How Cathy’s Little Free Library works is simple:

It is stocked with a variety of good quality books that will interest the community. Stop by and take whatever catches your fancy. Return and bring books to contribute. Cathy’s Little Free Library books are always free– never for sale!

The Little Free Library is a movement started by Todd Bol and Rick Brooks in 2010 and has grown to include little libraries in most states and in dozens of countries.

The mission of Cathy’s Little Free Library is to promote literacy and the love of reading, foster a sense of community and connection, and create a lasting memorial to Cathy Sanchez-Cañez.

For over half of her life Cathy, a beloved daughter, sister, mother, friend and special ed educator, positively impacted the Globe-Miami schools with her extremely generous and kind approach to teaching.

Since Cathy’s passing, her family and friends have made it a point to continue to do good in Cathy’s name. That is why they are excited to bring Cathy’s Little Free Library to Cathy’s hometown of Globe.

This mini library will be one of five Little Free Libraries dedicated to the memory of Cathy Sanchez-Cañez.
