Little Libraries At Aberdeen Lake Park
Posted Date:
10/31/2017
The Town of Aberdeen has now joined the Little Libraries club. As has happened in a couple of surrounding towns, there is now a new opportunity for children to access books to read. Little Libraries give people a chance to borrow a book, or donate a book, in convenient area locations. The new one in Aberdeen is located next to the playground in Aberdeen Lake Park.

Barbara Allred, with The Friends of the Aberdeen Library, was contacted by a couple of Aberdeen families interested in starting this program in their town. After reaching out to the Parks and Recreation Department to ensure the Little Library could be put in one of the parks, Barbara encouraged the families to move forward. Jason and Adriana Janker and Courtney and Katie Daniels spent Little Libraries approximately 20 hours and $200 building the Little Library. The families, with some additional decorating assistance from their children, were excited to bring this opportunity to the Town of Aberdeen. The Janker and Daniels families then came to Aberdeen Lake Park, along with The Friends of the Aberdeen Library representatives Barbara Allred and Ken Byrd, to install their new creation. From concept, to construction, to installation, the two families have produced a wonderful new opportunity for their community.

There are books now available in the Aberdeen Lake Park Little Library, but plenty of room for more. So if you are interested in grabbing a book to read, or dropping off some books for others to share, please swing on by the park and enjoy the newest Little Library!
