Little Free Library launches on Mission Reach

Wanna do some reading with your family on Mission Reach with the view of the San Antonio River or under the Cocobijos outdoor art piece? Now you can since the Grand Opening of the newest Little Free Library in the Southside at Mission County Park at 6030 Padre Dr, San Antonio, TX 78214.

The Little Free Library was launched by the Southside Chapter of the Scooby Van of San Antonio, Live From The Southside, and the San Antonio River Foundation.

Festivities included storytime with local author Johana Hernandez, the Scooby Van of San Antonio, live animal interactions with Southern Wildlife Rehab, and a nature scavenger hunt and educational activities courtesy of the San Antonio River Foundation.

Local business such as Urban Air South San Antonio, Complete Care, River Aid, and the San Antonio Museum of Art were also set-up to pass out freebies to the community and show their support.

Special guest District 3 Councilwoman Viagran joined Live from the Southside CEO/Editor-in-Chief  April Monterrosa to unveil the new Little Free Library with a few words from Linda Pearson, Founder of the Scooby Van of San Antonio and Frates Seeligson, Executive Director of the San Antonio River Foundation.

The Scooby Van of San Antonio Southside Chapter board members Norman Velez, owner of Brooster's Backyard Icehouse and Artist Bobby Avila, owner of AviDos Art. Thank you to the Hablitz Family for their generous donation of the library and to Bobby Avila of Avidos Art for making it a work of art! The library design was inspired by Cocobijos, the Mission San José art portal located at Mission County Park.

What is a Little Free Library? A Little Free Library is a literary resource powered by and for the community. You can take a book or you can leave a book. Do you have any kid-friendly books that need a new home? Consider donating your gently used books to the new Little Free Library at Mission County Park.
