Little Free Library

The Bee Adventurous Little Free Library book exchange is now open on Oak Ridge Drive in Standish. Built and operated by Sandra and Norman Boutin, the library aims to “build community, spark creativity and inspire readers.” The library is a dropbox with a yellow door on the front, and community members are encouraged to “take a book, leave a book.” For a map to the library visit littlefreelibrary.org/ourmap and search for library #114591.
