Ceremony to mark newest library

A ribbon cutting for the newest Little Free Library in Fort Wayne is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Newburyport Apartments at 1701 Reed Road.

Free-standing Little Free Libraries, based on the concept "Take a book, return a book," provide a way to share books freely within neighborhoods and at other gathering places. The installation of this Little Free Library is part of the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne's two-year celebration to commemorate the Club's 2015 Centennial by installing 100 Little Free Libraries in the area. This marks the 11th Little Free Library.

Newburyport's Little Free Library is a collaboration between long-time educator and literacy advocate, Betty Stein, who funded the Little Free Library's material and construction, and individuals who participate in the Day Services Program of AWS/Benchmark Human Services, according to a news release. The individuals painted and decorated the structure and will maintain the library to make sure residents will have plenty of books to read. AWS/Benchmark's mission is to help children and adults with disabilities live as independently as possible.
