Little Free Libraries
We now have two Little Free Libraries registered and on the LFL World map. Located in Scampy's Store in West Charleston and next to the Town Clerk's Office in Morgan, the little libraries are dedicated to former librarian Barbara Whitehill. Please visit them anytime and take a book or leave one-they are fully stocked with both adult and kids' books.
