Founded in June of 2015 the Little Green Bookshop is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting the advancement of cultural arts in Barrett Township and surrounding areas, located in Monroe County, Pennsylvania.  Our primary mission is to help invigorate cultural arts activities, rebuild our community theater, which was destroyed by fire in 2009, and uphold in perpetuity our Township’s historic role as a cultural arts mecca.  Our various activities will incorporate educational programs, fundraising events, and the distribution of net proceeds to local non-profit organizations and individuals whose missions and goals are in keeping with our organization’s objectives. Theatrical Gems and the Barrett Paradise Friendly Library are two organizations we plan to initially support.
