On Saturday, November 18, beginning at 9am, Little Free library at StoneHill will present a pop-up event in front of the steps of Morgan-Weir American Legion Post 27, 400 Bantam Road in Litchfield. The pop-up, which will offer free books, will coincide with the Hillacious Half Marathon that benefits local military members or families that need a helping hand. According to their website, “The H½ was created to honor our military, to thank them and let them know that their sacrifices are not unnoticed or taken for granted.” In 2016, the inaugural race ended with Samantha Glass of Goshen as the First Place Overall Winner.
Rose Buckens and Jo Ann Jaacks of Little Free Library at StoneHill, who are currently building and “planting” 43 lending library boxes in the Litchfield Hills, recently installed a little free library in front of Post 27 that also includes a list of items to be collected and sent to deployed soldiers. Pictured are Jo Ann Jaacks and Rose Buckens next to the little free library painted by Pam Corning of Bantam that is in front of Post 27 in Litchfield.
