Free Spirit News

We moved!

After 15 wonderful years in the Minneapolis North Loop neighborhood, we’re beginning a new chapter. You can find all Free Spirits (both two-legged and four-legged) at our new home at 6325 Sandburg Road, Suite 100, Golden Valley, MN 55427. Our phone/fax numbers and email will remain the same.

If you’re in the area, we hope you’ll visit. We look forward to making more wonderful memories in our new home.

Advisory Board Members Wanted

Free Spirit seeks early childhood educators and grades preK–12 teachers, administrators, librarians, counselors, and social workers to join its advisory board. In order to make our books and other products even more beneficial for children and teens, the advisory board will provide valuable feedback on things like content, text, and art and help us identify what educators need to support the kids they serve.

Free Spirit also seeks young people, grades 6 and up, to join its teen advisory council. In order to keep our books and other products current and relevant, the advisory council provides valuable feedback on such things as the design, art, and content of our resources for young people.



From all of us at Free Spirit, thanks for stopping by!
