Carl Junction receives third Little Free Library

Updated:
Carl Junction gets a literary addition in a tiny size with today's dedication of a new Little Fee Library in front of Randy's Drive-In.

Sponsored by the Carl Junction Leo's club... The free library is now one of three in carl junction. Local resident bud rogers built the small structure to house the books. Now.. The young members of the leo's club will keep the library in good condition... Offering a unique means of book borrowing for local readers.

"They can keep it for as long as they like they don't even have to return it they can return it to any little free library or they can bring their own," said Brett Boline, Leo Club member.

 "I just like the idea of how it's free, how you don't have to pay anything and how you can just have a book," said Joshua Numata, Leo Club President. "And it's just yours and if you don't want it you can give it back you can do anything with it. I think that's the best idea about it is just you can do anything with the books."
