Be the Change

BE THE CHANGEIt’s pretty cinchy to help the Guardian Gals Be the Change.
We are eternally grateful for donations made to our nonprofit organization,
but there are other ways to work with the Gals. One way is for gals to consider JOINING US!





What is a Little Free Library?
It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. 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. You can, too!

Guardian Gals, Inc. is creating little free libraries, which we call “Lil’ Lending Libraries.”
Thus, we are in need of gently used inspirational reading material.
Unused books will be donated to AAUW annual book sale, which will benefit scholarships
for women in Otsego County.
