Little Free Library
“Take a Book, Return a Book” is a Little Free Library concept that is now at the South Side Train Station and three other locations around Westfield per the support of the Friends of the Westfield Memorial Library. You can pick out a book from one the Libraries and when done reading, pass it on to a friend, return it to the same or one of the other Little Free Libraries. You are also welcomed to leave books for others to take. This creates an easy exchange to share the experience of a great book. The idea of the Libraries is based on the Little Free Libraries organization, located in Hudson, Wisconsin, that promotes the establishment of book exchanges throughout the world.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Westfield Memorial Library, in addition to the South Side Train Station, the other new installations of the Little Free Library can be found in Mindowaskin Park near the back of the Municipal Building parking lot, Tamaques Park between the tennis courts and the playground and the Walnut Street parking lot by the Elm Street Soccer Field. Monitored by the Friends of the Westfield Memorial Library, these libraries are initially stocked with books for all ages. As interest in the books varies so will the offerings in each Little Library. The Friends request books to be returned to one of these four libraries and not the Westfield Memorial Library.
