The Little Free Library Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on 
Tuesday, June 3, 2014, 2:00pm at Central School! The “Little Free Libraries” project was made possible by a $1000Marshwood Education Foundation grant awarded to Jenn Bogard, Central School Literacy Coach, during MEF’s Fall Grant awards in December. Students worked with local artist Shane Chick to locate, design & build 2 little free libraries. The students decided to have one at Central School and one at Marshwood Great Works School. Great Works is having their Little Free Library celebration as part of their Reading Garden celebration on Monday, June 9th at 2pm and all are invited to attend. The little free library is a gathering place where community members may stop by and pick up a book, and bring back another book to share. it’s a great opportunity for residents to share their favorite literature and stories.
