Houses of Knowledge

Oversized & Reimagined Little Libraries

Houses are Knowledge serve as book distribution centers for urban and low-to-moderate income neighborhoods and communities. More commonly known as Little Libraries, The Conscious Connect, Inc. has reimagined their uses to cater to the demographics of targeted areas identified as having the potential to become a Literary Oasis. The primary difference of nuances of Houses of Knowledge to Little Libraries is: 1) are traditionally larger and capable of circulating up to 3,000 books annually; 2) 100+ books are routinely restocked; 3) are carefully curated according to neighborhood and community demographics and needs. 

Our very first House of Knowledge is located in the Singer Neighborhood in Southern Springfield, at the residence of Co-Founder Karlos L. Marshall.

More Distribution Centers Coming Soon!!!

Springfield's African-American Community Fund fully backs Houses of Knowledge for three additional co-opt literary distribution centers; while United Way Clark, Champaign and Madison Counties contributed toward a fourth, as the recipient of the 2017-2018 innovation and special project grants. Further, the Institute of Applied Creativity for Transformation (IACT) at the University of Dayton has committed to funding a fifth in Dayton.
