Dedication of Little Free Library this Sunday at Softies -Tuscarawas County
The Dover Public Library and Temple Israel are proud to announce that the first (of five) Little Free Library will be dedicated on Sunday, May 22 at 2:00 PM at Softies at 717 N. Wooster Ave. This project was made possible by Rabbi John Spitzer and the Temple Israel Social Justice Allliance who not only donated the boxes but also the books that will go inside the library boxes. Rabbi Spitzer and members of the Alliance will be on hand for the dedication ceremony. Also present will be director of the Dover Public Library Jim Gill, library board member Sarah Lehman, and student artist Ana Baca Gomez.
“Visitors to the Little Free Library will be able to take a book to read and leave a book for someone else,” Jim Gill explains, “thus spreading the joy of reading with the entire community.”
Little Free Library is a 501 nonprofit organization that began in 2009. The organization promotes neighborhood book exchanges, usually in the form of a public bookcase. More than 90,000 public book exchanges are registered with the organization and branded as Little Free Libraries.
