Rotary Club of Chester, PA Installs Little Lending Library

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 By: Warren E Sell

Members from the Rotary Club of Chester, PA  install a "Little Lending Library" at the Chester Rotary Clock Park.
 
We hope to install "Little Lending Libraries" throughout the City of Chester, in areas where book access is limited as well as in areas of convenience (parks, bus terminals or laundramats)
 
What is a Little Lending Library?
It’s a “take a book, leave a book or do both” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Lending Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.
 
We are doing a trial with this first installation to see if this is a project that will benefit the residents and guests 
 
There will be no expense to the City. The Rotary Club of Chester will build, install and maintain the Little Lending Libraries.
 
It is our hope that this literacy project works well and that we can collaborate to improve the lives of the City's residents and visitors.

Rotary International's Motto is "Service above Self". If you would like to join us in serving in Chester, please don't hesitate to contact us at chesterparotary@gmail.org.
