Carnegie Public Library recently held a dedication ceremony for the Jeffersonville Little Free Library (LFL) on July 26. The LFL is located by the shelter house in the Downtown Jeffersonville Park.

The Fayette County community is home to a growing number of Little Free Libraries. These charming little landmarks are filled with books that bring hours of fun and adventures for readers of all ages.

Borrowing from “Little Free Libraries” is free for you to take a book you like or leave a book behind, and return it when you are done. Currently, the library partners with Altrusa of Washington C.H. to help support LFL locations in Bloomingburg, Good Hope, and at Shaw Wetlands.

Stay tuned for two more dedications soon at the First Presbyterian County Food Pantry and in downtown New Holland. Altrusa members will read to the neighborhood children and provide a craft along with cookies and drinks. All are welcome.
