— On Friday, Aug. 18, Sara H. of Girl Scout Troop 171 held a grand opening of a Little Free Library and Rolling Library at the dinner of the Warwick Community Kitchen for her Girl Scout Silver Award.

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front yard book exchanges number 36,000 around the world in 70 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan.

Now, a new Little Free Library outside of the former Pine Island Elementary School at 20 Schoolhouse will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.

Sara also opened up a Rolling Library during the monthly Warwick Community Kitchen Dinners.

Sara, along with her Project Adviser Victoria Garloch, the program director of the Warwick Community Kitchen, worked together to not only have the Little Free Library available outside of the building, but to also have a Rolling Library with more book choices available to the guests that come to the monthly dinners.

There are books for all ages and in English and Spanish.

Guests can borrow a book and bring it back during the next month's dinner and exchange it for a different one.

Sara is very excited to share her love of books with her community.
