The “Book Babes” a Warrensburg Book Club have donated a Little Free Library to the Town of Warrensburg. The library, constructed by Warrensburg Central School technology teacher Brandon Donato and his students, is located at Veteran’s Park.
Member Laura Danna shared an article from her alumni newsletter about the idea of a Little Free Library whose mission is “To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.” Melissa Carbone suggested that the Book Babes should donate a Little Free Library to Warrensburg and plans were set in motion.
The spirit of the Little Free Library is to take a book and leave a book, but the Book Babes encourage the taking of a book without necessarily leaving one to replace it. The eleven-member group has been meeting monthly for six years and should be able to keep it well stocked, but, donations are always welcome.
