The benefits of having access to books are clear: According to a 2018 study, people who grow up surrounded by books develop higher reading comprehension and better mathematical and digital communication skills. But not every kid has access to reading materials in their house or even their hometown. A 5-year-old resident of Alpha, Illinois recently solved this problem within his own community by opening a Little Free Library in his front yard, WQAD 8 reports.

Logan Brinson loves to read, but until recently, the village of Alpha didn't have a library of its own. He went to Alpha officials with his family and proposed setting up a small lending library in town. Logan's Little Library opened to the public in summer 2018. Today readers of all ages come to the Brinson house and check out one book at a time from the tiny case out front.

Steinbach woman finds 102-year-old letter from Manitoba Vimy Ridge soldier

Steinbach woman finds 102-year-old letter from Manitoba Vimy Ridge soldier The owner of a Steinbach antique shop and cafe is on a mission to find descendants of a soldier who wrote a letter 102 years ago. The letter, addressed to a Selkirk woman, describes in detail how her brother saved the writer at Vimy Ridge.

He takes shelter inside a cave where he finds an uninfected She-Hulk who has been there for a long time. He tries to convince her to throw him out of the Deadlands when the zombies find them. While wandering the city he has not seen in years , Logan meets this domain's Jean Grey and Emma Frost.

English Revised Version I opened to my beloved; but my Alphabetical: and answer as at away beloved but called departure did find for gone had he heart him his I left looked lover me my not opened out sank searched spoke to

Following the success of the first location, Logan plans to open a second library next to the gazebo in Alpha's town center. That's set to open in May of this year, and in the meantime, the Brinsons are accepting book donations from around the world. You can add a book to Alpha's little libraries by mailing packages to P.O. Box 672, Alpha IL, 61413 or 113 West B Street, Alpha, IL 61413.

It's easier than ever for kids to find books to read, even if they don't have a conventional library in their town. In Long Beach, New York, you can borrow books on the beach, and in New Zealand, kids are getting books with their McDonald's happy meals.
