On Tuesday, Feb. 2, Trinity Lutheran Church Outreach Committee installed two new Little Free Libraries. One is at Anderson Park in Oxford Township and the other is at the Stacy Lions Park. A third library will be installed in Central Park in North Branch in the near future.
The libraries were stocked with books that had been donated to Trinity. The books were stamped with the LFL stamp by residents of Ecumen.
Little Free Libraries was started in Wisconsin in 2009. Since then, they have grown to over 100,000 libraries in all 50 states and 108 countries. Over 165 million books have been shared through the LFL.
The idea is to have books available 24/7 at convenient locations. There is a website that lists locations of all the Little Free Libraries. There is never a charge for the books. Anyone can take one and leave one or just take one home to enjoy if they don’t have one to leave. There are books for all ages. The community is invited to not only get a book or two but can also donate books they have read to the library.
