Summer is officially here, and school is out until late August-early September. I gotta say, after the past year and a half of schooling, I personally think extended education is needed now more than ever. What better way to allow that to happen than by putting little libraries all around Augusta.

According to Centralmaine.com, you can find Little Free Libraries at several locations through Augusta, including  Calumet Park, Cunningham Park, Williams Park, McCalls Park, and Augusta Adult Education at 33 Union street. All locations except for the Augusta Adult Education location are open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The Little Library located at 33 Union Street is open during business hours only.

Aside from the 5 locations already available for those looking to borrow a book, 3 more locations are coming to Augusta. The first is planned for the Buker Community Center, the Webster Center, and the Augusta Food Bank located on Mount Vernon Ave.

Little Free Libraries is brought to you by Literacy for ME, a Maine Department of Education program, and several local volunteers.
