Dausman Family Donates Free Little Library to Lloyd Minor Park

The Dausman Family has donated a Free Little Library, a free book exchange, located on the west side of Lloyd Minor Park along Tualamere. Quentin and Andrew Dausman worked hard all summer to construct the wood library. Stop by to take a book or bring a book to share. Each year, nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries.
