Third ‘Little Free Library’ installed in West Union

One=year old Anna Huxmann works on her painting skills on the latest “Little Free Library” to be placed in West Union.

Here is the latest “Little Free Library” in West Union, next to the First Presbyterian Church.

The next time you venture out for a stroll around West Union, cruise past the First Presbyterian Church at the corner of State Route 247 and Walnut Street. You will notice the latest little library structure standing tall next to the sidewalk, patiently waiting for you to stop by and choose a new book. The structure is a “Little Free Library” which holds books for anyone with an interest in reading. The concept is simple: take a book, return a book. There are no due dates, late fees, or library cards required, and the doors are open every day of the week, twenty-four hours a day.

The latest little library was funded by a generous donation from the Adams County Courts and was assembled from a kit purchased online by Dave and Sally White. The little library was painted by all four members of the Huxmann family of West Union, including four-year-old William Huxmann and one-year-old Anna Huxmann. Two other Little Free Libraries exist in Adams County, all in West Union. One is located next to the Olde Wayside Inn and the other is located at 150 Kurt Street in the Watts Neighborhood.

Please stop by and visit one of the little libraries in Adams County. Who knows? You might pick up an interesting book. Just be sure to leave a book in return.

To build a little library yourself, or to purchase little library kits for your favorite artist or club to decorate, please check out LittleFreeLibrary.org or contact Jessica Huxmann at (937) 217-1622 or email her at jajjekyll@yahoo.com.
