Griffins Little Free Libraries
Go to the Box!
Longtime supporters of reading programs in hundreds of schools and dozens of public libraries across West Michigan, the Griffins have “branched” out to create their own custom-made Griffins Little Free Libraries.
These hockey-themed, “take a book, share a book” libraries have a bookshelf modeled after a hockey rink’s penalty box along with several Griffins-specific design elements. They have been installed inside three local community ice rinks: Griff’s IceHouse at Belknap Park in Grand Rapids, Griff’s IceHouse West in Holland, and Griff’s Georgetown.
A fourth library was awarded to Logan Hoyle of Comstock Park through our "Win a Griffins Little Library!" contest. Congratulations, Logan, and thanks to all the kids who submitted entries. Go Griffins and keep reading!
DISPLAY YOUR COMPANY’S LOGO ON OUR LIBRARIES
Each rink's library offers “dasher board” opportunities to display a company’s logo on one of six panels. Sponsors will also be acknowledged on a sign posted next to the library in each of the three rinks, which combined welcome more than 300,000 people each year for tournaments, leagues, lessons and other programming.
For questions about the Griffins Little Free Libraries or sponsorships, please call (616) 988-0246.
