The Little Free Library on Main Street

The Macon County Public Library, a member of the Fontana Regional Library, and the Friends of the Library installed their first Little Free Library at the Franklin Town Hall yesterday.  The Little Library was initially stocked with books donated to the Friends of the Library and children’s books donated to Read2Me.

The Little Library, built by a dedicated volunteer Jim Hartje, was inspired by the architecture of the Macon County Public Library.    Everyone is encouraged to use the Little Library to find something to read, where they can “take a book and return a book.”
