Little Library is to be dedicated

Student artist Ana Baca Gomez designed the Little Free Library to be dedicated at Softies in Dover.


The Dover Public Library and Temple Israel announced the first of five Little Free Libraries will be dedicated Sunday, May 22 at 2 p.m. at Softies.

This project was made possible by Rabbi John Spitzer and the Temple Israel Social Justice Alliance, which donated the boxes and the books that will go inside the library boxes.

Spitzer and members of the alliance will be on hand for the dedication ceremony. Also present will be Dover Public Library Director Jim Gill, library board member Sarah Lehman and student artist Ana Baca Gomez.

“Visitors to the Little Free Library will be able to take a book to read and leave a book for someone else,” Jim Gill said, “thus spreading the joy of reading with the entire community.”

Little Free Library is a 501 nonprofit organization that began in 2009. The organization promotes neighborhood book exchanges, usually in the form of a public bookcase. More than 90,000 public book exchanges are registered with the organization and branded as Little Free Libraries.

Registration is not necessary for the dedication ceremony.

Softies is located at 717 N. Wooster Ave. in Dover.
