Little Library opens

Jul 31, 2017
Friends Library’ is officially up and open for those who love to read.

WELLMAN—There’s a little addition to the Wellman Park and it’s reaching out to people of all ages. “Jenny’s Little Friends Library’’ is officially up and open for those who love to read. Looking for something to serve as a living memory to her daughter who was killed in a car accident, Hanni Hernandez decided to see if the community of Wellman would let her sponsor and care for a little library. Little libraries are popping up in many communities all over the nation as a way to encourage reading and to touch people who may not have the time or opportunity to get to the official library. This little library became a family affair. It

was handmade by Jenny’s sister Dawn and brother-in-law Matt who brought it all the way from

Montana. Books began moving out of the library at a very fast past and an S.O.S. to neighbors and

friends brought plenty of replenishing stock! To date, over 200 books have moved through Jenny’s Little

Friends Library. If you haven’t checked it out, you really should. There are definitely choices for all ages.

And if you happen to have a book or two you want to share, simply place them in the box with the

others and fill the joy in your heart as you give someone else the opportunity to read a great book.
