People who live near Wichita’s Fairmount Park will soon have another opportunity to get free books.

The Rotary Club of Wichita is providing what’s called a “Little Free Library” to the park with book donations to fill the shelves.

The freestanding neighborhood library is a small wood box at the top of a pole with shelves and an unlocked door. Anyone can stop by at any hour of the day and take a book for free.

Project organizer Sharon Van Horn says Rotary is working with the nonprofit Storytime Village to ensure children and adults have access to books.
