The opening Monday of a Little Free Library at Vincent Village, 2827 Holton Ave., will move the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne one more stop closer to its goal of opening 100 Little Free Library locations in Fort Wayne by June 2015.
The Vincent Village location will be unveiled at 2 p.m., a news release said. The structure was donated by Todd Bol, co-founder and executive director of the Little Free Library nonprofit organization, which is based in Wisconsin.
Rotary Club of Fort Wayne launched the Little Free Library project locally as part of its centennial celebration in 2015. Anniversary projects also include installation of a Rotary Centennial Clock Tower in spring 2015 on the green outside the downtown Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza.
Little Free Libraries, which often are based in neighborhood locations, operate on the concept of take a book, leave a book. People are encouraged to take a book they want to read and leave one of their books in its place for someone else to enjoy.
Vincent Village provides shelter, care, advocacy, affordable housing and support services for homeless families, the news release said.
It currently owns 33 homes in the neighborhood around the area of Holton Avenue and Pontiac Street.
