Exeter Library's New Little Library

The Exeter Public Library has a new addition in Storybook Park.  It’s a little free library in memory of recently deceased Exeter resident Norm Yound.

Librarian Lynette Trauger reminded patrons that the new box in the park is not a location to return books but just a spot to pick up a book and “even read it while you are in the park.”

The library will be having programs for a while, according to Trauger.  They had a summer reading program this summer that patrons could pick up and even participate in a scavenger hunt around town.

Library users are now able to peruse the card catalog online and Trauger is constantly updating information under each catalog entry to supply the readers with more information on the book.  Library hours are now 1 -6 p.m. on Thursday. 

If you do not want to go into the library you can call 402-266-3031 and leave a message for curbside check out.
