Fair Haven Free Library grab-and-go a great success

The Friends of the Fair Haven Free Library would like to thank the community for taking part in their grab-and-go bookcase project over the course of the past five months.

During that time 7,321 books were wrapped and given away. The project could not have taken place without the generosity of so many. They want to thank Fair Haven Grade School for the use of the bookshelf. They thank Shaw’s Super Market for kindly donating the space in their entryway for bookcases. They lost track of the number of donated rolls of wrapping paper (stopping our count after the first 300 rolls), tape, and labels. They also want to thank the Rutland Free Library for its donation of nearly 20 boxes of books. When the number of books began to dwindle, they generously supplied us with boxes of discarded mysteries, children’s books and adult fiction. They also have to thank the members of the Friends who donated approximately 250 hours wrapping the books.

After the many years of community support to the Friends and the Fair Haven Free Library, they felt it was important that the friends return the favor by offering them something to read during these months of Covid. They hope that everyone enjoyed the books.

The library continues to offer curbside service and will be opening up with limited hours beginning Tuesday, Oct. 6. The new hours for the library will be Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 3-6 p.m. Curbside pickup is available during those same hours.
