First free "Little Library" installed by the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library
August 27, 2020
DAYTON—The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library have installed their first free Little Library in the courtyard of the Historic Dayton Depot Museum.
Books for children and adults stocked in the Little Library are provided by the Friends of the Library. The books come from donation and from library books which have not sold in their book sales.
People who take a book can also leave a book. The main goal is to get books into the hands of the public and let them travel among readers instead of being stored or discarded.
Free Little Libraries are planned for Starbuck, Lyons Ferry, and The Last Resort.
The mission of the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library is to support the Columbia County Rural Library District, its patrons, staff, to support library and community outreach programs, services and facilities; to enrich the lives of Columbia County residents by advocating the use of the Dayton Memorial Library through fundraising efforts which include book sales, gifts, memorials, and endowments.
