Little Free Libraries in Bowness

In September 2013 Community Action for Early Childhood opened Bowness's first Little Free Library, thanks to the woodworking talents of Tom Born and the willingness of library stewards Ken and Madeleine Calvert. Since then, a partnership with Bowness High has produced eight Little Free Libraries in 2016 and another five this summer. These libraries were given to community residents and organizations who offered their front lawns up for the cause!
