Plymouth, Minn. (June 3, 2014) — TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union is proud to announce the addition of a new Little Free Library at its branch in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul. The branch is located at 757 Cleveland Avenue South.

“This large community has a small town feel with a diverse group of residents. We see families of all kinds in this area, so it’s a great location to promote financial literacy and a sense of community togetherness” said TruStone Financial Retail Sales and Service Manager, Kyle Knudson. “We wanted to place the library in a space convenient to the healthy amount of foot and drive by traffic we see each day.”

TruStone Financial’s Little Free Library is open to anyone and everyone and they encourage members of the community to use this library as a resource and stop by to pick up or drop off a book or two. The credit union accepts donations of new or slightly used, good condition and family-friendly books to place in the library. All types of family-friendly books are welcome for donation, with a substantial need for children’s literature.

The credit union has also just added Little Free Library sites at two of their locations in eastern Wisconsin. “We want to do our part in making our communities an even better place to raise kids, live, work, worship or grow a business,” said TruStone Financial Chief Business Officer Steve Steen. “Simply put, that’s what good neighbors do.”
