The Library has a new project going - Little Free Libraries. A Little Free Library is a "take a book, return a book" free book exchange. In its most basic form, it's a wooden box of books where anyone may pick up a book or two, or bring a book to share. It is a place for real people to share their favorite books with their community. These aren't just any old books, this a carefully curated collection.
Anyone may contribute or take books. If you take a book or two from the Little Free Library, you do not need to return that exact book. However, in order to keep the Little Library full of good choices for the whole neighborhood, the next time you pass by, bring a few books to share. Little Library book exchanges function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside.
The first Little Free Library is located at the White County Public Library close to the outdoor statue. It was donated in memory of Erbie Clark and was given by his family. Our hope is this will spur other donations of Little Free Libraries in various locations throughout the county. I personally want to see one on the playground of every school. If you want to know more, just call me!
