Dedication of Little Free Library at Park Place Outreach
The new Little Free Library will be part of the Flannery O’Connor Book Trail, which runs from Savannah, GA to Milledgeville, GA. Little Free Libraries encourage anyone to take a book and leave a book. The concept originated in Wisconsin in 2010 and has since blossomed into a network of more than 20,000 miniature libraries around the world.
The dedication ceremony will include a special tribute to the late Francis Allen, the owner of Savannah’s Roots Up Gallery who started the Flannery O’Connor Book Trail in2014 along with his wife, Leslie Lovell. The Downtown Garden Club of Savannah has donated time and effort to restore the garden at Park Place Outreach where the Little Free Library will be installed.
