Clifton Little Free Library

Posted on Aug 23, 2017 in Events | No Comments

Please join us this Friday evening at 6:30 PM for the unveiling of the latest feature of Clifton’s Garden Park: a Little Free Library and information center.

This project is the result of visionary leadership from our Planning Commission and Village Council, as part of a larger scale beautification and community enrichment initiative and in partnership with the Third Story Literacy Project, a local nonprofit with the goal of building, stocking, and supporting 100 Little Free Libraries across the Miami Valley. The “leave-a-book, take-a-book” library will be a registered Little Free Library, putting Clifton on the world map of Little Free Libraries and it will be stocked and maintained by the Third Story Literacy Project.  The unveiling will include a signing of the operating agreement and remarks by the Village Mayor and by a representative of the Third Story Literacy Project. This ceremony will be a brief interlude during the opening night of the Clifton Gorge Music and Arts Festival.
