The Village of Green Island is starting a “Little Library” program and have recently installed a box in the Paine Street Park. The Little Library is a free public book exchange (take a book, return a book) that aims to inspire reading throughout the community. There will be books for children and adults, we are encouraging reading as a family. Special thank you to Green Island resident Alisha Hope for the idea and more importantly for volunteering to help start the program and keep it up and running.

Please see more information, including rules and regulations for the program below:
