Little Libraries in Coquitlam Parks!

LibraryWe're a city of bookworms - and proud of it! Have you seen all the Little Libraries popping up in parks around Coquitlam? (Take a book, leave a book.) Look for them at these locations: 

These Little Libraries were built or purchased by volunteers and placed in the park with assistance from the Park Spark Team. Local stewards monitor the libraries and help keep them stocked with books. Make sure to help them out by leaving a book for others to enjoy next time you're in one of these parks!  

Mundy Park Volunteer Photographers

​Each month, our City's social media channels will feature a new photo from our Mundy Park Volunteer Photographers. Interested in submitting your photos? Contact the Park Spark Program Coordinator at parkspark@coquitlam.ca.
