The Little Free Library Coming Soon to Fillmore

The Little Free Library will soon be opening their first location in Fillmore when Marie Wren completes the installation of a small box on a post in her front yard. The grand opening will be announced later so watch for the date.

The Little Free Library is a non-profit 50l C 3 organized in Wisconsin several years ago and now has over 75,000 locations throughout the world. Each little box holds books to take to read and keep or return when you want to share. There is no cost and no “checking out.” Both children and adults are invited to participate. The motto is “Take a Book—Share a Book.” The books are always free.

The mission is to inspire a love of reading, build community and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world, and Fillmore will soon be a part of it.

Anyone wishing to share outgrown children books or your own favorite is invited to call Marie (524-4044) who will arrange to pick up your box of books, or you may leave them at her front door at 239 Sierra Vista to be put into the “library” when it opens. Everyone enjoys sharing an interesting story or non fiction.
