Brandy Lake’s First Little Library

Brandy Lake’s First Little Library at 1013 Phyllimar Lane, Brandy Lake

Several years ago I saw this initiative and thought it was great. Since then it has grown to thousands around the world although primarily in USA and Canada.

This was built with left over building material.

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. This library has been registered with www.freelittlelibrary.org the Charter no. is 56310 and should be listed on their website within several days.

Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

So please come by, take a book out to read or bring one for others to read , appropriate for all age groups.

This library will remain throughout the year. However, there will be limited accessibility in the winter due to the high snow. We do not come up in the winter and will not be clearing the path for the Library.
