Girls Incorporated® of San Antonio Mentors Valuing Peers (MVP) program members spent their summer giving back to the community by building and installing a series of Little Free Libraries as part of the Summer Team Up Challenge sponsored by Silver & Black Give Back. At Girls Inc. we believe that readers today become leaders tomorrow, and our Little Free Libraries help our girls spread a love of reading and lifelong passion for literacy in our community.
Little Free Libraries are hand-crafted structures that contain a constantly changing collection of books donated and shared by people of all ages and backgrounds. Our Little Free Libraries are located at Girls Inc. of San Antonio (1209 S. St. Mary’s St. at Stieren), Madhatter’s Tea House & Café on Beauregard and the San Antonio Housing Authority on S. Flores St.
We are accepting donations of new and gently used books, in English and Spanish, to help keep all of our Little Free Libraries fully stocked throughout the year. Donations can be dropped off at our main office Mondays - Fridays from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Girls Inc. works to “inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and boldSM”. Our Mentors Valuing Peers (MVP) program gives girls 13-18 years old the opportunity to build and strengthen their leadership skills and serve as inspirational leaders to our younger girls. Our Girls Inc. MVPs have tackled some tough issues facing girls at our town halls, represent Girls Inc. in the media, and have earned over 3,000 community service hours in the past year.
