In Memory of Milady Quito Little Free Library
Milady S. Quito described herself as an “educator, activist, aspiring world traveler, and favorite auntie.” Tragically, in November 2020, she died of covid-19 complications.
We celebrate Milady’s life and spirit as her family, friends, comrades, colleagues, and students. She was a passionate lover of books and a fiercely dedicated teacher, believing that education was the foundation for both individual and political empowerment.
“Friends of Milady’s Lil’ Libraries” has partnered with Little Free Library to build and install community book-sharing boxes. The first 48 MiLibraries will be established all over the United States focusing on underserved communities in many neighborhoods from Los Angeles to New York. They provide children with a free book exchange to inspire them to become lifelong readers, learn, and build community. There are also plans to set up MiLibraries in her beloved homeland, the Philippines. Learn more about The Milibrary Project here.
