Brightwaters couple installs Little Free Library at park

Posted

A couple from Brightwaters created and donated a Little Free Library, installing it in Wohseepee Park in Brightwaters. Mary Donnelly, who initially came up with the idea, said that people are taking and leaving books.

“I go every couple of days just to see how it is doing and see how books are moving in and out,” Donnelly said, adding that she has a collection of books donated for the Little Free Library at home. “Every time I go, I bring one or two with me in case inventory is getting a little low. But it is not low.”

Donnelly said her fiancé, Rich Allegretta, built the structure using supplies donated by his workplace, Florence Building Materials. And it was installed in the Wohseepee Park for the purpose of giving back to the community.

She first saw a Little Free Library in Nashville on a residential property. In January, she and Allegretta stumbled upon another in Lindenhurst on Wellwood Avenue. Shortly afterwards, the couple discussed the idea at a Brightwaters Village meeting and received approval to install the structure.

The Little Free Library in Wohseepee Park was put up on June 25.

“It was fun for us to do, and we would like to see people use it,” Donnelly added.
