All are welcome to join us on Saturday, September 24th at 11:00 am, when the ribbon will be cut on the Capital Regional District’s 650th Little Free Library!
Neighbours will be gathering at the corner of Haultain St. and Scott. St. (1635 Haultain Street) for a short ribbon cutting, followed by a celebration. Refreshments will be provided. This latest Little Free Library, named the “Garden View LFL,” was installed by Marthinus and Lori de Wet, and built from salvaged and upcycled materials.
In other Little Free Library news, a Book Sale/Bake Sale is also taking place on Saturday, September 24th at the First Unitarian Church of Victoria (5575 W Saanich Rd opposite Red Barn Market). Postponed these past 2 years, there’s a LOT of books. Organizers ask that you please bring your own bags or boxes. Little Free Libraries get FREE books after 3pm, doors close at 3:30 sharp.
