TDL is so pleased to announce the placement of 13 Little Free Libraries around our service area! A Little Free Library is a small weather-proofed box containing books that can be borrowed and returned. We have many people to thank for constructing, placing, and maintaining these little libraries because as you know any project “takes a village”!

Ten LFL’s were constructed by Eagle Scout Lee Geister, with the remaining 3 being constructed by Jerry McCoy, Richard Warchuck, and Randy Robson. Many thanks go out to their hard work and skills for making these libraries. The libraries were then decorated by many area residents and installed throughout the library’s service area. They can be found in Pine, Hinton, Douglass, Maple Valley, Winfield, Cato, and Belvidere Townships. For a map of them, please visit the following link: Little Free Library World Map. 13 people have agreed to steward these libraries, taking care to keep them amply stocked and clean.

Lastly, but not least, we wish to thank Sue Draper for her hard work organizing the placement and care of all of these libraries. If you are in an area where you see one of these LFL’s, make sure you stop in and take a book, leave a book!
