The public is invited to attend a ceremony Wednesday, May 7 to celebrate Placer County’s newest Little Free Library. This Little Free Library, located in an Auburn neighborhood, has been recognized as a Little Free Library of Distinction for its unique design, creative outreach efforts, and the enthusiasm of its steward, Terri Goodman. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone can pick up a book and leave a book to share. According to Goodman, a retired school teacher who loved to read to her students, the Little Free Library in front of her home is a perfect way for her to continue to celebrate books and the enjoyment of reading.
This Little Free Library of Distinction is called Marianne’s Little Free Library, named for Terri Goodman’s dear friend Marianne, a former fellow teacher, who contracted Encephalitis and struggles with serious health issues as a result.
The ceremony celebrating Marianne’s Little Free Library will take place at 10:30 a.m. at the home of Terri Goodman at 215 Terrace Street in Auburn. The event is sponsored by the Placer County Library and Literacy Support Council of Placer County. A nonprofit group, Little Free Library Ltd., started the “Little Free Library” movement in 2009. Stewards typically oversee the operation of Little Free Libraries, but the public is encouraged to informally borrow and donate books.
