The Literacy Committee of Greece Rotary Club was honored recently with a very special recognition, a photo montage of all libraries. The Committee oversaw the building and placement of 16 Little Free Libraries located throughout the Town of Greece. Little Free Libraries provide easy access to books, with homeowners positioning the small “Library” near the road/sidewalk on their property. One borrows a book, then returns it when done or replaces it with another. Greece Rotary, with the help of a Rotary District 7120 grant, built the Libraries. The homeowner then agreed to install, decorate, and maintain going forward. 

Rotarians Paul Chatfield and John Zink built the 16 Libraries. Committee member Tracy Wooden coordinated the process of connecting with homeowners and delivering the structure. John Zink then spent a fine spring day crossing the Town in search of all 16 Libraries, photographing each one. He then put it all together in a booklet, a video and most importantly, a framed montage of all Libraries.  This was then presented to the Literacy  Committee, in appreciation of their fine efforts to make Little Free Libraries a reality in Town of Greece.
