Wilkes Little Free LibraryPosted by Lynne Ukich on 1/7/2019Come check out the new Wilkes Little Free Library, now located right outside the library door!The Little Free Library movement has taken hold in communities and schools all across the country, including neighborhoods on Bainbridge Island. Ths little library is for all of us (students, teachers, parents). It is simple and excellent in its purpose to circulate good books into the hands of eager readers.This is how it works:1. You or your child bring a book from home that is no longer needed, and place the book in the Little Free Library.2. Then you may take a book from the Little Free Library. You may also donate without taking a book, if you so choose.3. Repeat as often as desired!We are all trusted as part of the Wilkes community. The Little Free Library is available anytime school is in session.Please help us maintain high quality in this little library. Refrain from bringing board books, TV/movie/toy character spin-offs, damaged books, etc..Gently used is fine.If you are interested in more info:
