Little Free Library Memorial Special Literacy Recognition
Pictured - District Governor Jim Squire, Rick Hasty, Julie Williams and Rotary Club of Thomasville President Kim Walden District Governor Jim Squire emphasized literacy this year as his special project. So it was only fitting that during his official visit to the Rotary Club of Thomasville that we highlighted a very special Little Free Library Project. Julie Williams lost her sister Nellie Amanda Hasty this past March after a long battle with cancer. Her sister loved to read and especially loved visiting our Little Free Libraries. Julie became aware that our club was refurbishing the seven LFL’s in our community and called to find out how to establish one in honor of her sister. Thanks to her question we were able to help her with this goal and will soon be painting and registering a LFL built by Rick Hasty in her honor. The LFL will be housed at Emiliano’s, a local coffee shop and favorite place of Nellie's. We are so honored to help Julie and to share the gift of reading with others in our community.
