The Fishers Island Library has erected its first Little Free Library at the rear entrance to the Fishers Island School. It was built by the high school shop classes of Jared Kaplan, with the active encouragement of Principal Christian Arsenault, with materials supplied by the Library. It is stocked with books for children of all ages — board books, picture books, first readers, chapter books and young adult fiction. Its motto is: “Take a book, Return a book.” It’s open to everyone, it’s free, and there are no return dates. Take any book you want, share a book you think others would like to read, bring joy to your fellow Islanders!
The Library hopes that this will be the first of many Little Free Libraries located wherever people gather on Fishers Island. Let us know what you think.
