Little Free Library installed at Pearson Metropark Playground

        There’s something new at the Pearson Metropark Playground.
        A Little Free Library book-sharing box has been installed, offering reading materials for children and adult book lovers to enjoy, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
        A Little Free Library is a free book-sharing box where anyone may take a book or share a book. One needn’t share a book in order to take one, however, those who do take a book are encouraged to try to bring some to share to that same little library, or another in their area, if and when they can.
        James Dungan, a resident of East Toledo, looks after the Pearson Free Little Library, serving as its official steward. A participant of Thompson Total Home Care, a Toledo provider of services to adults with disabilities, he has been working on this community service project for almost two years.
        With growing concerns over COVID-19, Dungan is providing hand sanitizer at Pearson Metropark’s Little Free Library box, and asks those who are feeling ill to please return when they are well.
        Today there are more than 100,000 registered Little Free Library book-sharing boxes in 108 countries – all started by founder Todd H. Bol, who created the first Little Free Library in 2009 in Hudson, Wisconsin, launching what would become a global book-sharing movement.
        To donate books for sharing and exchange, text a note to 419-344-3807.
