Ceremony for The Little Free Library

The Carefree/Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce was present on Thursday, Nov. 16, to conduct a ribbon cutting ceremony for The Little Free Library.

The “Little Free Library” project was underwritten by longtime Carefree residents, Linda and Mark Putney, on behalf of the Desert Foothills Library and is a neighborhood book exchange that promotes literacy and the love of reading. The Town of Carefree installed the “Little Free Library” adjacent to the Gila monster playground for easy access by children and adults. Everyone visiting the Carefree Desert Gardens is encouraged to stop, reach into the little green house, select a favorite book to read or leave a book for someone else to find. Volunteers from the Desert Foothills Library maintain the Little Free Library on a daily basis and add books that are supplied by Chapter2 Bookstore, which is located inside the Desert Foothills Library.
