Created, constructed and stocked by Bob Cunningham (109) and Barry McPherson(122), the FIRST Bruce Beach Library opens this weekend. Another “first” for the North! Will “Lower” or “Middle” Bruce Beach follow suit?
Modelled on the Little Free Library program found in many neighbourhoods in Canada and the United States (see, www.littlefreelibrary.org), this Library is located beside the tennis courts at Cameron Grove so that it is accessible to our Junior Baseball players and their fans.
The Library has 2 shelves—an upper shelf for adult books; and a lower shelf with books for children and teenagers.
The principle of a Little Free Library is that you “Take A Book; Leave A Book”. It is not a drop off zone for every old book you find in your cottage! Please take these elsewhere (e.g, to Condor books in Kincardine or the Kincardine Library Book Sale on Saturday, June 27th).
All Bruce Beach owners, relatives and guests are encouraged to leave a book that you think others would enjoy reading; and to take a book from the shelf that is of interest to you. And, to encourage and facilitate more reading by your children and grandchildren over the summer, please introduce them to the Library and ask them to leave books that others of their age would enjoy.
