Little Free Libraries - Stewards
The Town is seeking neighborhood stewards who will act as caretakers to assist with ensuring our Little Free Libraries (LFL) remain stocked with appropriate materials, promote the LFL and make sure it is clean and inviting. Your primary purpose as a LFL Steward is to engage your friends and especially your neighbors so that every single person who comes in contact with your LFL feels like it’s THEIR Little Free Library & comes to care for it as much as you do.
✓ Do you enjoy reading several books a month?
✓ Are you friendly with some of your neighbors?
✓ Would you consider yourself creative?
✓ Would you like to share your love of reading with your neighbors?
If you answered yes to any of these questions and you live within one of the following neighborhoods, you could help serve as a steward for the Town’s Little Free Libraries program:
- Pine Gardens South
