Library dedicated to child lost by violence

The memory of a child lost to violence will now be honored through an outdoor book-lending site.
The library is dedicated to Ty'Quarius Moultrie.

The 1 yr old was shot and killed in Pensacola Village back in 2011.
A "little free library" unit built in his name, was unveiled at adoration for a new beginning church on Government st.
His family wants to promote education in the community.

They feel making books available will encourage more young people to read, rather than get caught up in violence.
His grandmother, Toni Washington said, "I appreciate adoration for a new beginning for starting this up in his name and I pray that every child in the community and this neighborhood comes and gets a book."

Little free libraries are part of an international movement to get more people reading.
The boxes may be inside or outside, filled with books that you take and return at your convenience.
