LFL: Alive and Well!

The Little Free Libraries started by the Butte County Library have been handed off to CFOL. I’m here to say that the project is alive and well! This report is on the LFL that is located at Peterson Park.

It was brought to my attention by Maureen Parks Jeffers, that this wee box of adventure and inspiration was in need of repair. The next week she emailed me a “thank you!” However, the work had been done by an anonymous benefactor! The door now looks and functions beautifully. If the anonymous benefactor reads this, please contact me so I can thank you properly.
