Little Free Library

This Little Free Library was handcrafted by the Sikes family and dedicated to our director, Mrs. Garrett, in honor of her dedication to encouraging the love of reading in children.  After the Leaving Ceremony, the Fours and their families presented Mrs. Garrett with beautiful, new books to fill the library.  Registered with the national organization, our library has its own charter number and corresponding “pin” on the worldwide map.  We encourage all our families to “take a book, leave a book”.  (May 2018)
