Reading is Fun and Free!

Mrs. Denton commented, "Little Free Libraries are a way to build communities, spark creativity and inspire reading and readers. A few years ago, I saw a news story on how these Little Free Libraries were popping up all over the world, and what a positive impact they were making on the neighborhoods that hosted them. It was a dream to have one at my house and provide them around our town! My family surprised me with one at Christmas.  I then approached the BHS Ag Shop asking if they had anyone who would be interested in partnering with the Bulldog BROS and DIVA Dawgs for this endeavor and the answer was Yes!"
Fast forward a few months and the little free library is now sitting on the corner of Pierce and Brier Streets!   Mayor Crista Bromley read the City of Burnet Proclamation declaring April 23, 2019 be observed at Free Little Library Day and then the children cut the ribbon to open the library!   Mrs. Denton is thrilled that her dream has come true commenting, "This was a partnership for sure.  Without BHS teacher Eddy Parker and volunteer Samantha Melvin, this project would have never been accomplished."
Here is how the Free Little Library works: 
The Library belongs to everyone! Anyone may use it - neighbors, friends, and passersby. The books are always free.
Take Books - if you see something you would like to read, take it! It's for you. Some books include a note about who gave it or has read it. You may leave your own note in it when you are done.
Share Books - When you're finished with a book, you may pass it along to a friend or return it to this Library or any other Little Free Library.
Leave Books - Your books are welcome at any Little Free Library, especially your childhood favorites and books that teach and spark conversation.
We hope that you will come and the new library - no appointment necessary!
