FREE LITTLE LIBRARY

In 2012, the Incourage Community Foundation Teen Leadership Group erected a Free Little Library under the old oak tree in Twin Lakes Nature Center. The concept is "take a book, leave a book", and is free to everybody who visits the nature center. Our Free Little Library is open during park hours from early spring until late fall and holds books for people of all ages. Everyone is invited to select a book and sit and read, or take it home with you.
