Take a book; share a book. That’s the message greeting visitors at Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve’s new miniature library.
The library includes two wooden benches near an enclosed bookcase along Marshall Lake near the park’s entrance.
The site has become a popular reading spot at the preserve and a convenient way for community members to trade books. Park visitors are invited to leave their old books and borrow books they’d like to read.
Members of the Rotary Club act as stewards of the library, ensuring that books are family friendly and the bookcase is clean and well maintained.
The project is part of the Little Free Library program, which installs the bookcases throughout the country. The small, front?yard book exchanges number 60,000 around the world in 80 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. You can find a library near you at https://littlefreelibrary.org.
