The Holderness Free Library has joined other libraries in New Hampshire in establishing a Little Free Library. It is located at the town beach. The library keeps it stocked with donated and surplus books. Beach goers have made great use of this addition.
Library Director Jackie Heath and Children’s Librarian Kelly Schwaner.
It’s a "take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.You can, too!
