Horn Lake Little Free Library

07 Sep 2016 4:21 PM | Sarah Mangrum (Administrator)

A new Little Free Library is now open in Horn Lake, MS! This is the result of a community partnership project between First Regional Library, The City of Horn Lake, and Career Tech West High School. First Regional Library provided the materials for the library, the city of Horn Lake approved the library to be placed in the city park, and the construction students at Career Tech designed and built the Little Library with input from library staff. It has been placed close to the Parks and Recreation office and members of their staff are going to be the "stewards" to make sure it is stocked with books.


First Regional Library received a grant from First Book Mid-South to stock the Little Library with NEW books for the first few months. The Little Free Library will be registered on the national Little Free Library site soon. Since this project has been such a success, First Regional Library plans on doing more collaborations around the 5 counties to install more Little Free Libraries.


Savannah Sheley, daughter of Amy Lay, from the Horn Lake Board of Alderman, and Carolyn Hobbs, Friend of the Horn Lake Public Library, choose a book from the new Little Free Library.
