Little Free Libraries of Valley Junction

We are a very unique community, filled with colorful homes and the personalities to match! Valley Junction is kind of like your grandmothers quilt! We have lots of history, filled with miss-matched patterns, and bold colors that pull us all together into a comfortable, familiar, fun and safe place to live, shop or visit! Unlike most urban areas, you will not see the usual shades of only taupe and gray, nor will you see the neighbors and businesses trying to “Keep up with the Joneses” Instead...we all beat at the sound of our own drum!

There is a full rainbow of colors to be seen here in Valley Junction! Please post pics of what’s #OnlyInTheJunction! to YOU?!
