Aurora Fitzsimons Rotary Club worked with local Cubscout Pack 106 to install a Little Free Library within General's Park in Aurora on Saturday, October 3, 2020. Little Free Library is known as the "World's Largest book sharing movement" that is aimed at "Building community, Inspiring Readers, and Sparking Creativity", by providing central spots for free book exchange throughout the world. 
After hearing that Aurora Public Libraries was providing "little free library" boxes free of charge to applicants in 2019, the "small but mighty" club knew they wanted to get involved. General's Park near the UC Anschutz campus, the Aurora city park which the club sponsors, would provide the perfect home for a "free library". Mike Ely, AFRC treasurer, championed the project by arranging logistics with Aurora Public Libraries as well as City of Aurora Parks, Recreation & Open Space. Throughout the process Mike even joined the Parks and Recreation board and with the help of the city, saw the project through to completion.
As an additional way to involve the community, AFRC reached out to Cubscout Pack 106, an organization which the club supports, to see if the scouts would like to help. The scouts assembled, painted, and finally installed the box with the supervision of pack leaders and AFRC club members alike. Most importantly, the cubs offered their books to fill the library for kids who cross through the park. Both AFRC & Cubscout Pack 106 will maintain the library and together look forward to a new generation of readers within the Aurora community. If you'd like to visit, General's Park is located at 1561 Quentin Street, Aurora, CO 80045 and the little library can be found near the playground.
