Huntsville residents can now enjoy some light reading in front of Algonquin Theatre. The Little Free Library was built by the Rotary Club of Huntsville. Rotarian Ross Kirwin was one of the builders. He says Rotary is so pleased to be part of this initiative.

This project was a joint effort that included the Huntsville Public Library. Adult Services Technician Cortney Lee-Comeau says it’s about promoting the joy of reading.

The Little Library wouldn’t be successful without the Huntsville Festival of the Arts as well. President Suzanne Riverin says they are always looking for partnerships to promote the arts and education.

Other partners include the Town of Huntsville and the BIA. The Rotary Club of Huntsville may have built the library, but BIA Executive Director Helena Renwick used her painting skills and bring it to life.
