Little Library is Installed in Matthewstown Run Neighborhood

little library installed in matthewstown runTalbot County Public Schools received a generous gift from Common Ground, Inc. in the form of a “Little Library.”  The structure was originally donated by Mrs. Nicole Paylor, a member of the Common Ground Board of Directors. Since 2009, the “Little Library” movement has grown to include over 50,000 small free book exchange sites in the U.S. and over 70 countries, in areas where “regular” library branches are not feasible.

Little Free Libraries operate on the “take one-leave one” principle.  Anyone may contribute or take books.  A borrower does not need to return the exact book (or books) they take, but should bring a book to share.  Little Library book exchanges function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside.   

A student from St. Michaels Middle High School painted the structure to make it more weather-proof.  A range of high-interest books for children and adults were donated by TCPS students and staff.  Mrs. Theresa L. Ward, Instructional Assistant at Easton Elementary – Dobson, has been instrumental in securing and installing other Little Libraries in our community.  Mrs. Ward worked with Mrs. Lorraine Gould, Director of Parks and Recreation to find a suitable, safe, accessible location for this latest addition, located in the community park at Matthewstown Run housing development.
