In addition to Atlanta, Marvel Library locations include Los Angeles, Washington DC, Cleveland, Detroit, Phoenix, El Paso, New Orleans, and New York City.

Roughly 40,000 books will be generously donated by Disney Publishing and FirstBook.org to stock the various Libraries for two years, as a way to bring communities together and celebrate the power of reading through free access to books. Books featured in the Little Libraries will include Marvel titles such as The Heroes’ Journey (Road to Avengers: Infinity War) and The Cosmic Quest Vol. 1, along with many other epic stories.

Were delighted to work with Disney Publishing Worldwide to bring Little Free Libraries full of books to cities across the country,” says Little Free Library creator and executive director Todd H. Bol. “We believe everyone has the power to be a hero in their community. Even the youngest reader can make a difference.”

The Little Free Libraries set up in select locations across the United States and will be maintained by volunteer community stewards. Visitors to the Marvels Avengers: Infinity War-themed Little Free Libraries, or any neighborhood Little Free Library, are invited to take a book or share a book of their own.

In Atlanta, the Marvel Library will be placed outside Humphries Elementary School and another Little Free Library will be placed inside. These two Libraries represent the 61st and 62nd Little Free Libraries installed throughout Atlanta.

“We are extremely excited to continue our partnership with Real Dads Read, Little Free Library and the Atlanta Public School District. Our children deserve books that support their learning and encourages them to read books that excite them,” says Kenneth Braswell, executive director of Fathers Incorporated.
