Bethel AME Church ded­i­cates Lit­tle Free Li­brary

Dorchester Star - - REGIONAL -

CAM­BRIDGE — Bethel African Methodist Epis­co­pal Church in Cam­bridge ded­i­cated its Lit­tle Free Li­brary on Sun­day, July 1. The li­brary was built and do­nated by Kevin Bev­erly to the Dorch­ester Re­tired Ed­u­ca­tors As­so­ci­a­tion.

Lit­tle Free Li­braries is a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that pro­motes a love for read­ing, builds com­mu­nity, and sparks cre­ativ­ity by fos­ter­ing neigh­bor­hood book ex­changes. The or­ga­ni­za­tion’s slo­gan is “Take a Book — Re­turn a Book.” The books are free to any­one in the com­mu­nity to take a book, ex­change or re­turn a book or give a book to a friend.

The goal is to wel­come par­tic­i­pa­tion from within the com­mu­nity and keep the li­brary full at all times. For more in­for­ma­tion about the Dorch­ester Re­tired Ed­u­ca­tors Free Li­brary pro­gram and other lo­ca­tions of their Lit­tle Free Li­braries, con­tact Ruth Clen­daniel, pres­i­dent, at rclen­daniel@at­lanticbb.net.
