There will be a rededication at 4 p.m., Friday for 11th Little Free Library at Northside Hills Apartments.
It was knocked over by vandals the same weekend as the dedication on Sept. 15. According to the Spalding Collaborative, it has been repaired and relocated inside the administrative offices there at 615 Northside Drive.
“When thinking of starting the Initiative, we were aware this may happen,” a statement from the Collaborative read “but, we also knew the benefits of a Little Free Library far outweigh any potential problems.”
The rededication includes ice cream sandwiches with the children, according to the Collaborative, “as we celebrate the reopening of the library at Northside Hills community.” The sponsor for this one is still Vulcan Materials and steward is management staff of Northside Hills Apartments.
Brett Bell has spearheaded this effort with the Spalding Collaborative.
There will be another dedication the following week for No. 14 at the Griffin Area Resource Center, according to Bell, on Oct. 27, at 1 p.m. Griffin Area Resource Center will host the dedication there at 931 Hamilton Blvd., Griffin.
GARC will serve as steward and this one is sponsored by Southern Crescent Technical College. For this one at GARC, Bell has asked that “folks bring picture-driven books as opposed to true word driven books.”
More are planned with the project bringing together people from the county to steward, build, decorate and host and help supply the Little Free Libraries. New and gently-used books can be dropped off at First National Bank, 318 South Hill St., Griffin, or the dropbox outside the Women’s Center at WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital.
