Our club has completed the building of ten Little Free Libraries, and three more have been donated for our east Salem community. Thank you to Ken Morin and Ted Mack, who have helped build most of these libraries. Ted Mack has purchased a plaque honoring longtime club member Phil Sperl, and it will be displayed on one of the libraries.
The first library was installed last week inside the Seymour Family Resource & Child Development Center. This week has been a busy one for library installation. Ken Morin installed a library inside the DHS Self Sufficiency Office, and people immediately started browsing books. DHS management and communications heard about the popularity of the Little Library by the next day, and they are planning to write an article about it for dissemination among DHS staff and are sending it to the governor’s office for a publication called My Oregon News, which goes to 500,000 readers. Ted Mack installed a library at St. Vincent de Paul School (more photos next week), and more installations are on the way.
