Tonight at Fayetteville Public Library one can learn all about Little Free Libraries

Dear Neighbors, attached is an article posted today in the Fayetteville Flyer online news publication.  I also included a link to the website where the article appears.  The writer says there presently are four little free libraries in Fayetteville.  That didn't include the newest addition on Hall Avenue.   Perfect timing for D'lorah and Joy!  Beverly

Ever dreamed of running your own library? If so, then join Todd Bol, co-founder of the Little Free Library program, for a discussion this week at the Fayetteville Public Library.

Bol will speak about the program and how to generate interest in a community from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4 inside the library’s Walker Community Room.

Little Free Library is a community program that promotes the love of reading by constructing book exchange boxes in convenient locations at the front of your home where bibliophiles can share books.

There are currently four little libraries in various locations throughout Fayetteville.

Readers are welcome to take a book from the exchange boxes while replacing it with another one. The mission of the program is to develop community relationships, promote conservation, and encourage literacy.

For more information about the event, contact Melissa Lockaby, Reference Librarian, at 479-856-7205.
