Little Free Library at Bel-Aire Elementary
Now students in the Orange Grove area will never run out of books to dive into.
That is all thanks to the Rotary Club of Gulfport-Orange Grove. The Rotary Club donated the very first Little Free Library that is located on the Bel-Aire Elementary School campus. The library looks like a little bird house, but it is filled with free books.
The library runs on the rule of ‘take a book, return a book.’ Rotary Club of Gulfport-Orange Grove Co-Chair Caroline Ladner said, “We encourage them during the weekend, after school, whenever, to come over pick out some books, take home and read them, bring them back and if you have books at home that you no longer read, bring them here for someone else to enjoy.”
The Little Free Library is one of several literacy programs the organization provides for children in the community.
