Take a Book – Leave a Book at the Free Community Library

“The more that you read, The more things you’ll know. The more that you learn, The more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

A new community-based library has been installed recently at Blackville Foodland. This is a free library for the community and is based on the “Little Free Library” project.

The library belongs to everyone and contains a variety of books for children and adults, fiction and non-fiction. If you see a book you would like to read, take it and return it when you are finished – you don’t need to sign it out. Or if you want to keep it, you can return a different title in its place.

The library is located at the front of the store near the soup nook. The library was brought to fruition by Blackville Foodland managers, Naomi and Clem Savoie, Les McLaughlin and Roland Sturgeon.

If you would like to donate more than one book, please contact "> for details.

    Hi Heather,
    The library is a permanent addition, as long as it’s being used. We swap books at least twice weekly, so there are always fresh ones being stocked.

    How long will this be in place?
