July 25, 2018 – Leonardtown, Md. – The Rotary Club of Charlotte Hall and St. Mary’s County Library are pleased to announce the opening of a Little Free Library at Chaptico Park on Tuesday, August 7 at 7:30 a.m. Members of the public are invited to attend the opening of the new Little Free Library.
A Little Free Library is a “take a book, leave a book” free book exchange. Anyone may take a book from the Little Free Library, or bring a book to leave for someone else to read. The Rotary Club of Charlotte Hall has purchased a Little Free Library to serve the community in Chaptico. The blue and yellow Little Free Library will be conveniently located between the concession stand and the parking lot next to the playground.
St. Mary’s County Library will provide the initial books, and will continue to restock the Little Free Library when needed. Books will be available for a variety of ages from small children all the way up to adults. Anyone visiting Chaptico Park is welcome to read while at the park and take the book home. The purpose of a Free Library is to help get books into the hands of all individuals in our community, while also sharing good books and bringing our community together.
“We are excited about this new Little Free Library,” said St. Mary’s County Library Charlotte Hall Branch Manager Kathy Faubion. “Folks who come to enjoy the playground and the park will have ready access to good books either to enjoy there or take with them. This Little Free Library will promote reading for all ages and encourage everyone to find a great read.”
“The Little Free Library at Chaptico Park demonstrates Rotary’s commitment to community service,” said Toni Kruszka, Rotary Club of Charlotte Hall, past president. “We are excited to partner with St. Mary’s County Library and St. Mary’s County Recreation and Parks on this project that will impact residents of all ages.”
