Nature Spirit Libraries 

Community Project

In the summer of 2017, Antinanco Earth Arts School in collaboration with KidBilt, Be Light Living, local children and families, embarked on a project to encourage children and families to take their learning and reading beyond classroom walls. 

 

We have been building, installing and decorating Nature Spirit Libraries in parks and public areas of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The libraries are built with reclaimed wood and upcycled materials, and with solar panels on top, for lights and device charging. They are free and open to the public at all times.

 

Library Locations:

Holmdel, NJ - 46 Seven Oaks Circle

Emmaus, PA - Amber Connection, 226 Main Street
Jersey City, NJ - Van Vorst Park, 83 Wayne St

Williamsburg, NY - Williamsburg Treehouse, 132 North 5th St, Brooklyn

 

 

Donations of children's books, crafts and seeds are welcome and tax-deductible. They can be mailed or dropped off at 46 Seven Oaks Circle, Holmdel, NJ, or at one of our libraries. With any questions or to request a tax-deductible receipt, please email info@antinanco.org
