Altrusa sets up second ‘Little Free Library’ in county


The local Altrusa club, supported by a literacy grant from Altrusa International Foundation, is well on its way to setting up its second official “Little Free Library” in Fayette County, with this one intended for the village of Good Hope. In May 2016 the first library box—shaped like a bright red barn, with vivid flowers painted along the sides by the female Miami Trace High School FFA members who had designed it—was installed in front of Bloomingburg’s town hall. This spring, two male MTHS FFA members, under the guidance of FFA advisor Bruce Bennett, created a rustic-looking gray barn complete with a tall blue silo attached to one side. David Batson, one of Wayne Township’s trustees, is overseeing the placement of the free library beside the Wayne Township Town Hall. Pictured are (l-r) Batson, Altrusa Literacy Committee member Teresa Persinger, Altrusa Literacy Committee Chair Jeannie Bihl, and FFA graduating seniors Kale Howard and Trevor Pursell.
