Our last “Little Free Library”…

June 4, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The last of the seven “Little Free Libraries” donated to the Friends by the Rotary’s Literacy Project has found a home: Kevin O’Keefe is the happy winner of the fundraising raffle that ended June 2nd.

All the Little Free Libraries were hand-built by the Rotary’s Literacy Project Committee and painted by local artists.

So what exactly are Little Free Libraries?

These “libraries” are sturdy, weather-proof boxes (kind of like bird houses), with a capacity for about a dozen books, that get mounted in public places. Passers-by are free to browse the books, take some home to read, and perhaps leave a few behind for others to enjoy. To find out more about this friendly concept, visit

The Rotary’s Little Free Libraries were painted by local artists Robert Craig Aldrich, Bob Cincotta, Pat Little, John McCarthy, Susan Rosano, Kim Stice and Suzy Worden, all of whom donated their time.

All the proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to support the library with programs or materials to enhance the library’s mission. We are extremely grateful to the Brattleboro Rotary for involving us in this project.
