Eagle Scout Steven Butler has built new Little Free Libraries for use in Roanoke County. Installed at three sites across the County, each is being dedicated with a book event. While one took place last Thursday (at Garst Mill Park, 2699 Willow Lawn Street), you still have two chances to take part in the festivities.
- Tuesday, July 30, 2 PM: Walrond Park, 6824 Walrond Drive, Roanoke
- Thursday, August 1, 2 PM: Green Hill Park, 2500 Green Hill Park Road, Salem
Each event will feature a ribbon cutting, a make-your-own Little Free Library craft, refreshments, and books.
Partners in the project included the County, the County’s Parks and Recreation Department, and area schools. Each Little Free Library has a theme implemented by a different school.
Garst Mill Park’s Little Free Library, designed by North Cross, features flower paintings. Walrond Park, painted by Northside, is a Dr. Seuss motif of “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” Green Hill Park features kite flying and was painted by Community School.
