Starting with our first Little Free Library placed at the White County Public Library in memory of Erbie Clark White County has seen a growth of Little Free Libraries!  These new libraries will be located at the public school campuses.

The Little Free Library is based on the idea of take a book and leave a book so that White County citizens will always have access to books in their area.  They are open at all hours for any body in their area.

If you would wish to know more about the Little Free Library program or information about how to purchase your own Little Free Library please contact Cathy Farley (931) 836-3613.
