The newly opened swap shop at the Morris, CT transfer station is beginning to take shape and get attention. On Friday, October 13, Rose Buckens provided two boxes of children’s books from the Little Free Library at StoneHill.
Rose Buckens surprised Barefoot Books Ambassador Marsha Miles with her very own Little Free Library to plant in Torrington, CT while both were showing at the Family Nature Day event at White Memorial in Litchfield. There won’t be a problem finding books for this Little Free Library!
A Grand Opening for this very special Little Free Library built by Dan Cassidy and placed atop a vintage desk provided by Rose Buckens will be scheduled soon!
On Saturday, August 12 from 10am-12noon, True Value in Bethlehem will welcome a Little Free Library pop-up visit.

On June 23, 2017 the official Grand Opening of the Little Free Library #46,391 at New Morning Market in Woodbury was held amidst the annual fundraiser for Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury, which helps victims of domestic violence. There was a BBQ with locally provided hamburgers & hotdogs, as well as ice-cream sundaes from Arethusa Farm Dairy in Litchfield. Four singer/songwriters performed and Little Free Library of StoneHill provided many free books, a make-your-own-bookmark table and a chance to paint and hide a “Be Kind” river stone to be found by someone else. Artist Charlotte Adams was on hand to join the festivities with her family and John, the owner of New Morning Market gave his granddaughter the honor of placing the registration on the box.
Little Free Library pop-up is held each Thursday from 5pm-7:30pm at the Morris Marketplace on Higbie Road in Morris. We offer a large assortment of books for children, young adults and adults, plus bookmark making and an opportunity to paint a stone for our Be Kind project.
