Little Free Library

Molly Smith shared the following information about what her 6th grade students (almost 7th graders!) have been up to this year:

We've been very busy drilling, hammering, sanding, re-figuring and painting our two Little Free Libraries over the past few months and I am pleased to share that they are FINALLY ready to put up in our community! Yarmouth Community Services is helping us dig holes and put in our two designs in our chosen locations: Royal River Park on the kiosk right near the parking lot, and the edge of the Shipyard playground on North Road. We have some book donations to start off with (though we could use more gently used books if you have any lurking about your home :) and we've written letters to the residents of the surrounding community to let them know they will have a LFL near them!

The kids have worked very hard, with a little help from the amazing and generous Tom Reinsborough, and I am thrilled to see the finished products shared with our community! You can visit the LFLs anytime to borrow/take/leave a book and remember to tell your neighbors to visit, too!

We're pleased to let you know that the Little Free Libraries were installed today, Tuesday, June 18th! They are ready and waiting for our students, families, and community members to drop by.
