Announcing Fry School's Little Free Library!

It's been a year like no other! Despite it all we have come together, whether face to face or through technology, to stay connected and make it a success! We are thrilled to announce the addition of Fry’s Little Free Library in front of the school near the flagpole. Special thanks to our TEAM IPEF runners who raised the funds for us to make this purchase!

We have started this Little Free Library to keep that connection going and inspire readers throughout our whole community. It is our hope that this will bring a little more joy, a little more connection, and a whole lot more books to our community!

How Does This Library Work? This Little Free Library offers a way to share good things to read—favorite books from your childhood or books you would recommend to friends— books that teach, intrigue, and engage you. All of us can help by keeping this collection stocked with good reading material.

Whose Library is this? It belongs to everybody—neighbors, friends, and people we don’t even know yet. Anyone can use it! That’s why we want to take care of it. Take a book. If you see something you’d like to read, take it. You don’t have to give a book at the same time as you take one. Share a book. After you’ve read it, share it in any Little Free Library book-sharing box, bring it back here, or pass it on to a friend. Be a friend of all libraries, big and small. Share books whenever you can.

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity through neighborhood book-sharing boxes. There's one little exception, if you have a book that is a public library or school library book, please make sure that is returned to the appropriate place and not in the Little Free Library. Thank you, enjoy, and keep reading!
