THOMASTON — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library announces a new free library box on the corner of Main and Knox streets on the side of the Moondance shop. Constructed by workers of the Prison Shop, the free library is up and running. 

Books in the box are free for anyone to take, and books may be added to the box by residents of the area. There is space for both adult and children’s books.

Davene Fahy and Jeff Carty, members of the Friends, have been instrumental in getting the free library up and running. 

“Our hope is that people in the community, especially families with younger children, will help themselves to books that they can enjoy reading,” said Carty, in a news release. 

“Having the free library is a way to encourage community involvement and a way to meet your neighbors, said Fahy. “We encourage all members of the community to take a book and/or leave a book.”

A dedication for the little library will be scheduled in the near future.
