College Hill Corridor to feature "Little Free Libraries" | News
A group of organizers will be putting up some "little free libraries" around the College Hill Corridor area near Mercer University.
Macon Little Free Libraries, a project funded by the Knight Neighborhood Challenge Grant, will launch at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Macon Dog Park at the corner of Chestnut and Adams streets.
The project is a free book exchange where organizers will put wooden boxes around the College Hill area to house books. People can go to these "Little Free Macon Libraries" and borrow a book or two while adding a book of their own for others to read, according to a news release.
Thursday's event will take place during Yappy Hour, a dog-friendly Macon-Bibb parks and recreation event that includes live music, beverages and vendors.
Small book shelters will also be placed at James Park at Georgia Avenue and College Street; G. Bernd Park on Magnolia Street; Forsyth Street Alley, near Cotton Street; the Oglethrope, Lee and Maple streets triangle; and Tattnall Square Park.
