We're pleased to announce that Leadership Coweta will soon hold ribbon cuttings for two of its Little Free Libraries projects! A ribbon cutting at the Newnan/Coweta Boys and Girls Club will be Tuesday, March 28, at 5 p.m., and a ribbon cutting at the First Avenue Park will be Monday, April 3, at 11 a.m. A third location, the Seavy Street Park in Senoia, will have its ribbon cutting on May 9.
The libraries operate on the honor system—anyone can take a book or leave a book—and all kinds of books are welcome. According to Littlefreelibrary.org, millions of books are exchanged each year through this network of neighborhood book exchanges. The most common form is a small wooden box.
“Oldcastle Precast is honored to be a part of the Little Free Library movement initiated by Leadership Coweta’s Class of 2017,” said Bryan Tidwell, project manager/production scheduler. “By sponsoring a library across the street from the Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club on Wesley Street, we are increasing the accessibility of books for individuals of all ages and creating a greater awareness for the need to support literacy efforts here in Coweta County.”
Sponsors of the project are Keep Newnan Beautiful and Old Castle Precast, and West Georgia Technical College is responsible for the construction of First Avenue Park’s Little Free Library, at left.
