Free Library available

TROY — A Little Free Library is located at Trinity Episcopal Church, 60 S. Dorset Road, Troy.

The Little Free Library is a small wooden box filled with books with the concept of “take a book, return a book” book exchange. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share, and the library functions on the honor system.

One of Trinity’s members, Mary Siegel, brought the idea to the church and is the primary caretaker or “Little Free Library Steward”. The steward is usually the person who put up the library. The steward takes care of basic maintenance like keeping the library clean and inviting, but it is up to everyone who uses the library to keep it stocked with good books.

Trinity’s Little Free Library is now in in place at the northeast corner of the front parking lot and is registered with a charter number, which adds the library to the world map of libraries.
