The festivities will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. and will including reading, stories, crafts, face painting, snacks and the planting of Rhinelander’s first Little Library.

The purpose of Little Libraries are to promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide, and to build a sense of community to share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
The festivities will be held at Central School in the Flower Garden Area (off Timber Drive). This community effort has been made possible by the volunteer efforts of:
• Jim McAtee and Adam Kope, who have built two Little Libraries
• The CHAMPS Art Club, who decorated the Little Library that will be planted on Saturday
• Kids In Need, and their generous contributors
• Community volunteers and contributors
