Little libraries are popping up everywhere these days and thanks to the Oneonta Rotary Club, there are now three more in the City of Oneonta. The idea of the little library is to take a book and leave a book. This of course gives encourages reading and it's free to participate.

As part of Rotary's Centennial celebration, club members Dave Rowley, John Maine, and President Carlton Cleveland installed a little library at Valleyview Elementary School, Riverside Elementary School, and Greater Plains Elementary School with photos posted on the Oneonta Rotary Club's Facebook page. Check out a few photos...

If you follow Oneonta Rotary Club on Facebook, you can see the ways in which these volunteers work to enhance our community.
