To the Editor:
The Bayonne Civic League is proud to announce the unveiling of a Little Free Library at 10 a.m. on Oct 20. The library will be housed on the lawn of Grace Lutheran Church, which has partnered with the Bayonne Civic League for this endeavor.
Little Free Libraries are small, permanent structures that offer free books to the community. Books are stocked by local citizens and are available for anyone to use. Having a Little Free Library as a feature of the community encourages citizens to give back, stay involved, and promote literacy. This will be the first of its kind for Bayonne.
As a community-oriented 501c3 organization, the Bayonne Civic League recognizes the achievements made in community outreach and youth literacy by the Little Free Library Organization. We hope to contribute more Little Free Libraries in the future and will continue our charitable donations to the Bayonne Public Library by way of our signature Taste of Bayonne event held in the spring.
If you are interested in learning more about the Bayonne Civic League, please email Eileen Kiza or Ryan Walker at Bayonne.Civic.League@gmail.com, or come to one of our monthly meetings – which are held on the first Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. on the second floor of Hendrickson’s.
