Crawfordsville Rotary Club is bringing an international craze to Montgomery County. Little libraries are popping up around county towns, thanks to Rotarian’s and a local bank.
The idea is to promote reading and to add a positive new twist to each community.
“I am really excited about this new project the Rotary Club is doing,” Rotarian and little library organizer Claude Johnson said. “I love this project because we all have great books we can share and honestly don’t know how to get rid of. This program is free and has been a success all over the world.”
So far, the Rotarian’s have placed little libraries in Alamo, Wingate, Mace and Shannondale. Communities scheduled to get a little library are New Richmond, Elmdale, Yountsville, New Market and Waynetown.
Readers can go to any little library and take a book or two. Patrons can replace their chosen book with one of their own, or even keep the book. The service is free.
