Little Free Library

The Castle Shannon Library is excited to announce that we have purchased a Little Free Library that is located at the Borough Building.

What is a Little Free Library, you ask?

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share.
