LEEDS — A “Little Library” has sprouted next to the day lilies at Town Office in Leeds.
Donated by the Leeds book group and built by Jeff Clark, of Greene, the little red barn has books for both children and adults, and they’re free for the reading.
The library is based on Little Free Libraries that can be found in neighborhoods around the country. With the invitation to “Take a Book, Leave a Book,” the libraries hope to inspire a love of reading, build communit, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges. See a book that intrigues you? Take it home, read it, share it, and, if you want, return it to the little library. Can’t bear to part with it? Keep it and donate another book you feel others might enjoy to take its place.
People wanting to donate books can leave them in the box inside the Leeds Town Office, and they’ll be added to the library as space permits.
