A new small free library has appeared in a downtown park.
That’s the job of the Warren Garden Club
“As Warren Garden Club members Kris Whitaker and Marysue See put Celeron Park to bed for the winter season, they set up the little free library, grab a book, share book box for the use of the community”, said Rebecca Ryan.
There are over 100,000 small libraries in over 100 countries.
The idea is quite simple: if you want a book, get one. If you want to share one, put one on.
The number of small free libraries in Warren County continues to grow. According to the Free Small Library World Map, that number now stands at 11.
This includes Chapman State Park and Kondak’s in Clarendon. One on Shipman Eddy and two in Russell – Greenbriar Circle and Pine St.
Four are located in Warren – the Garden Club Library, Warren General Hospital, Grace United Methodist Church, and Connecticut Ave.
Libraries can also be found in Scandia at the Elk Township Historical Society and the Rouse Children’s Center in Youngsville.
Ryan said the Garden Club library was built and designed by Marysue and Dave See with letters from Boonie Sturdevant of Sturdevant Signs.
The library “is already used by locals and passers-by”, she added. “The Book Box expands access to books and puts books in the hands of readers young and old.
“Warren Garden Club invites garden books, children’s books and fiction and non-fiction,” said Ryan.
