It Starts with a Square

Little Free Library

BY Sarah Comeau

The Junior Auxiliary of Collierville (JAC), in partnership with Main Street Collierville, held a ribbon cutting ceremony for a newly constructed Little Free Library on July 28th, 2017. A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” exchange, encouraging anyone to take a book or bring a book to share.

The materials and construction of this first installation was donated by Robbie Maree of Titan Home Improvements. The artwork of the Collierville Town Square streetscape was provided in-kind by Jaime Groce, Collierville Town Planner. Sharron Thomas of Sass it Up agreed to have the library installed in front of her business, which is a prime location due to its proximity to the Town Square green space and benches.

Thanks to generous donations, JAC and Main Street Collierville will stock the Little Free Library with books of various genres, free for public borrowing.

The Junior Auxiliary of Collierville (JAC) is part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA), a non-profit organization founded in 1941 in Greenville, MS.
