Books for everyone to read: That’s the joint goal of the Sabine Parish Library and the Many Cultural District Advisory Committee, and the Town of Many.
The library donated several boxes of books last week to be used in the Many Book Nooks. They include most of the books popular novelist John Grisham has written. They also include many other books the library is donating for the book nooks.
The Many Book Nooks are little free lending libraries which will be located all around the town. They are expected to be in place by end of January. Posts have already been installed and the actual book nooks will be installed by the end of January.
Head librarian Debbie House Anderson and Robin Jordan, children’s librarian, loaded up masses of books that were then taken to City Hall where they will be placed in the book nooks upon completion.
Many Mayor Ken Freeman said he’s grateful to the library for being so generous and working with the Cultural District Committee to provide books to read for everyone.
“Book Nooks were a major project for our Cultural District committee, and we’re delighted with the enthusiasm and cooperation we’ve had from different groups: the Sabine Parish Library, SARC, the Depot Art Guild, and our citizen/business sponsors. Very soon now, we will have free books for everyone to read,” he said.
