The Friends of the Carl and Mary Welhausen Library Teen Advisory Committee recently placed a Little Free Library in the front waiting area, at Yoakum Community Hospital. Forming partnerships with other community leaders, such as the hospital, is just one of the many goals this committee of young people has established for themselves. We are proud to be the first sponsor for this amazing project! Thank you to the Yoakum Library Teen Advisory Committee for their generosity!
So, What Is A Little Free Library? It is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. How does it work? The library belongs to everyone; anyone may use it; if you see something you like – take it; leave a note or review in the provided guestbook; share the books when you’re finished; and leave other books – your gently used books are welcome.
