Little Free Library
Fallbrook officially has its own Little Free Library located at NW 6th St. and Aster Rd. The library was made out of a refurbished doll house by the Lubeck family and their neightbor, Lorre Spencer. The Fallbrook neighborhood residents donated to the cause so the Lubecks and Spencer could fix up and weather proof the old wooden doll house.
Mindy Lubeck, the driving force behind the Fallbrook Little Free Library, said “In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book, or two, and bring back another book to share.”
A reveal was held in Fallbrook on Sunday, September 21st at the location of the library. It was attended by Pulitzer Prize winner, Ted Kooser. Kooser spoke and signed autographs for children and parents in attendance.
The Fallbrook Little Free Library is in memorial of Linda Lubeck, a former teacher and librarian in the Alma, NE public school district. Lubeck passed away in 2007 after a long battle with Multiple Myeloma.
