Three new Little Free Libraries are up and running in the Greencastle-Antrim community.

The first is outside of True Value at 785 S. Washington St. It is sponsored and stewarded by Tonya and Bryan Grosh.

The second is located at the Jerome R. King Playground, 240 N. Carlisle St., near the Omwake Pavilion and the green playset recently donated by the Greencastle Lions Club. The Little Free Library is being hosted by the Jerome R. King Playground Board, sponsored by the Greencastle Lions Club and stewarded by Joann Williams, a member of the Lions Club.

The third Little Free Library is inside of the lobby of the Blue Heron Events Center at 407 S. Washington St. It is sponsored and stewarded by Denise Hutchinson.

There are previously established Little Free Libraries outside of the shop on Baltimore Street, across from the high school on Ridge Avenue and in Antrim Way Honda’s lounge.

The Little Free Libraries are made possible by the Greencastle-Antrim School District’s Literacy Task Force.

Community members are encouraged to visit the Little Free Libraries and “Take a Book, Return a Book!”
