Students and staff from East Selkirk Middle School created two “Little Free Libraries” and presented them to their community at the RM of St. Clements council meeting on June 26, 2018. A little free library is a mini, public, weather-protected bookcase where you can walk up and ‘take a book, leave a book’. It is a movement that aims to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity. There are 60,000+ Little Free Libraries in neighbourhoods worldwide. Books are for all ages.
The artist for both boxes is Grade 9 student Teagen Purvis.
One of the “Little Free Libraries” will be located at the RM of St. Clements office in East Selkirk and the other one at the Kirkness Rink, near the Highway 59 and 44 cloverleaf.
Hopefully residents will keep the books flowing and full of choice for others to read!
