Redmond Police is excited to unveil a new way to interact with our community while also supporting literacy. RPD is joining departments all over the country in sponsoring our own Little Free Library at the Redmond Community Center. Our goal is to create a hub of book sharing and engaging reading events. We are celebrating our Little Free Library with a grand opening event on July 25 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. at the Redmond Community Center at 6505 176th Ave NE. Children and adults are invited to come for story time with our officers, ask any questions you may have for police, discuss any great books you've read, and meet our K-9, Remy! Like the name implies, Little Free Libraries are free book exchanges where people can borrow a book to keep, return or pass on to someone else.  RPD plans to collaborate with the Community Center and other partners to host story times and book club gatherings. We want Redmond to personally know the officers who are serving them and the library and reading events will give us more opportunities to connect," said Redmond Police Lt. Tim Gately. "Reading and literacy are such critical life skills and we want to support that any way we can. Redmond PD is one of 100 fortunate police departments across the nation to receive a library free of charge through a non-profit program called "Kids, Community and Cops." The program aims to reduce illiteracy which has been closely linked to crime. According to the Department of Justice, the link between academic failure and crime is welded to reading failure. More than 70 percent of inmates in America's prisons cannot read above a fourth grade level. For more information or if you have a great idea for an event please contact Redmond Police Public Engagement Coordinator Andrea Wolf-Buck at 425-556-2545 or awolf-buck@redmond.gov. For more information about the "Kids, Community and Cops" go to littlefreelibrary.org/community.
