Love where you live!
It’s almost been a full year since the Pandemic first shut things down in La Mesa. We’ve had to resort to online connections and zoom meetings to get by. While tech has been a lifeline, it’s also led us to more Facebook fights and Twitter wars than we likely could have imagined. Now more than ever, it’s important that we make time to take a break from our devices. As we look to celebrate the 12th annual National Day of Unplugging here is one fun way to do just that. There are over 30 no-contact, scavenger hunts scheduled to take place in neighborhoods across the globe. San Diego is leading the way as a model community, collectively unplugging with 5 neighborhoods organizing Little Free Library scavenger hunts on March 6th!
Little Free Libraries (LFLs) have been around since 2009 with over 100,000 registered boxes in 110 countries. They come in all shapes and sizes (tiny boxes with books for the taking) based on the premise of “take a book, leave a book” - making it the world’s largest book sharing program. With many indoor businesses closed right now, LFLs are thriving as a way to keep the love of reading alive and creating an opportunity to get out of the house in a socially distant way.
What neighborhoods are having scavenger hunts?
La Mesa, North/South Park, Santee, Clairemont Mesa and Coronado.
