"Our Little Free Libraries don't just belong to us; it belongs to the entire community," says Crystal Locke. "It's our hope that this Little Free Library will bring joy, connection, and a whole lot more books to our community."
"The Little Free Libraries are for all ages - we have books for adults and children, fiction and non-fiction, we even have some books in Spanish," says Suzy Hankins, a member of the Fortnightly Club.
