There is a new place for Watford residents to get a book. The Watford Rotary Club worked with Literacy Lambton to build a Little Library at the Sunset Ave. Park in Watford. The concept of every Little Free Library is ‘take a book and share a book.’ Watford Rotary President George Noll said “A book house in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. It provides cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination.” The Watford library is being placed on Little Library smartphone app so anyone can find it. Seen here at the opening Tuesday are Wilma Aarts, Rick Hollingsworth, Warwick Township Councillor Wayne Morris, Noll, and Marianne Cundick, and Trudy Morris of the Rotary as well as Tracy Pound, executive director of Literacy Lambton. And at the right is Hollingsworth, who built the library.
