Rotary Club of Faribault

The Faribault Rotary Club has placed a second "Little Free Library" at Our Savior's Lutheran Church to provide greater variety and meet a growing usage.  The "Little Free Library" program was begun by Rotarian Todd Bol of Hudson, WI in 2009.  He made the first one out of an old door in the shape of a school house to honor his mother who had been a school teacher. He put it in his front yard with his mother's books.  Since then 75,000 Little Libraries have been placed in all 50 states and 88 countries.  Improving basic education and literacy is one of Rotary International's area of focus.  Todd Bol died on October 18th from cancer at the age of 62.
