MORRIS — On Saturday, June 15, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Little Free Library Stewards Rose Buckens and Jo Ann Jaacks will host a tag sale fundraiser for their nonprofit Little Free Library at StoneHill, an official partner with littlefreelibrary.org, at StoneHill, 118 West Street (Rte. 109) in Morris.
The launch for the Little Free Library building workshop series was a great success with volunteers gathering at filmmaker Harvey Hubbell’s farm in Litchfield on July 2, 2017. The mission is to build community, grow literacy and make new friends.
The public is invited to come on June 15 to also learn more about this trending phenomenon. When the global nonprofit Little Free Library was honored by The Library of Congress for Creating Communities of Literacy, Founder Todd H. Bol said, “For an organization that builds some of the smallest libraries around, it’s quite an honor to be recognized by the largest library in the world.”
There are currently over 87,000 Little Free Libraries in 90 different countries. Proceeds of the tag sale will be used to add to the 50+ lending books boxes in the Litchfield Hills already installed by StoneHill.
Included in the tag sale will be décor, furniture and garden architectural and ornamental items, and all books for adults and children will be free. Those wishing to donate books can bring them that day or contact Rose Buckens at 203-770-4156 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
