CTK READS!  News from the Library 

ALWAYS A GIFT NEVER FOR SALE

These words comprise the label that is posted in each book in our Little Free Library…that is the little gray church structure mounted on a post at CTK’s east driveway entrance. A LFL is a neighborhood book exchange where anyone passing by can take a book to read or leave a book for someone else to find.

The first LFL was built in 2009 by Todd Bol in Hudson, WI. He mounted a wooden container designed to look like a one-room schoolhouse on a post on his lawn and filled it with books as a tribute to his mother, who was a book lover and school teacher. The idea of LFL soon became a “global sensation”. 

CTK’s LFL is very well used by adults, youth, and children. It especially offers easy access for students to books during their summer break from school. You as individuals are vital in this important neighborhood outreach and we rely on book donations from our congregants and friends. Please consider donating any of your used books so that we can continue to offer this valuable service to our neighbors. Books can be left in the book donation box in CTK’s library.
