LITTLE VILLAGE — La Villita Community Church will host a taco party Sunday to celebrate the unveiling of its little library.

The taquiza will take place noon Sunday at the church, 2300 S. Millard Ave. There will be games, and people will be able to take home books to celebrate the Little Free Library’s first official day of being open.

Noah Pickens, a church member and a little library project leader, said they hope to barbecue and people will be able to donate books.

Local youths built the Little Free Library over the past several days. Little libraries are small, public bookcases placed in community areas, often used to promote literacy and the free exchange of books.
