Located in Veterans Park on Frisco Street in Marked Tree, AR (across the street from T & Co).
Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front-yard book exchanges number more than 100,000 around the world in over 100 countries — from Italy to Brazil to Japan. Now, a new Little Free Library at Veteran’s Park in Marked Tree will join the movement to share books, bring people together, and create communities of readers.
“I have always loved reading books,” says Dustin Hood, the Marked Tree resident who donated the Little Free Library to the city. “I started a book blog, Dustjacket.Reviews, nearly two years ago to connect with other readers that share my love for reading. It’s my hope that this Little Free Library will bring a little more joy, a little more connection, and a whole lot more books to our community.”
Nestled beneath an oak tree on Frisco Street, passersby will now be able to stop and browse the selection of books that have been donated, not only by Dustin, but the entire community. It operates on a take-one-leave-one system. “If you don’t have one to give, take one and bring it back the next time you stop by,” Dustin Hood said. “This is all about sharing books that you enjoy with others.”
