Where the brick walkway ends at our front door you might find wisdom, joy, passion, understanding or a pathway to new horizons— all this and more in our newly-installed Little Free Library Book-Sharing Box.
The project was fully-funded through the generosity of the Rotary Club of Berea, whose mission is to foster international understanding, good will & peace. The men & women volunteers of our local Berea Chapter provide community engagement opportunities such as this. Their continuing programs include youth scholarships and direct aid & assistance to feed & clothe those less fortunate.
The design of the box replicates that of the Schoolhouse, sans bell tower. It was designed and constructed by Berea Rotary member Jeff Dettmer. Schoolhouse board member Andy Timko is our project chairman. We encourage our community to “Take a book. Share a book”. The Berea Fine Arts Club occupies the Schoolhouse and will soon add Art books to the offering. We will always look for exciting, new ways to educate and engage with our community, even if only one-person-at-a-time.
The mission of Berea Little Red School House Foundation is to preserve and restore the Berea District 7 Schoolhouse, an historical site and on the National Register of Historic Places, and to provide a facility in service to the community and perform other civic functions to improve our quality of life with emphasis on education in the arts.
