Little Free Library Dedication Ceremony at Park Place Outreach

3jun4:00 pmLittle Free Library Dedication Ceremony at Park Place Outreach

Event Details

The new Little Free Library, painted by local artist Kimberly Dawn Crowder, 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 on June 3 will include a special tribute to the late Francis Allen, the co-owner of Savannah’s Roots Up Gallery who started the Flannery O’Connor Book Trail in 2014 along with his wife, Leslie Lovell. The installation of the new Little Free Library at Park Place Outreach and the continuation of the Flannery O’Connor Book Trail is made possible by contributions donated in honor of Francis Allen upon his passing on August 30, 2017.

In addition, 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. This event is free and open to the public.
