We are excited to announce that St. Monica’s is now hosting a Little Free Library in Cantonment. The library is contained in the old newspaper stand that we’ve painted bright red. It sits directly in front of the church next to and facing Highway 95-A.
Anyone from the community may borrow a book or keep a book or add a book to the library. If you take a book (or two) from a Library, you do not need to return that exact book. The library is currently supplied with mostly children’s books, but we would love to have more books for adults donated as well. The library is never locked, so people can access it at any time.
The purpose of the Little Free Library is to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges. Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are ex-changed each year around the world, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and back-grounds.
You can keep up to date on our Little Library on its own Facebook page – @stmonicaslittlefreelibrary. There will be regular posts with pictures of some of the latest books found in our library. Also, you can learn more about the Little Free Library movement at their website https://littlefreelibrary.org/ . If you have any questions or concerns about the library at St. Monica’s, please contact Elizabeth MacWhinnie at email@example.com or 736-6126.
