The museum’s new Little Free Library (LFL) was a special project by Boy Scout Adam Klamerus, a recent graduate of Niceville High School where he was a football student-athlete. Adam spent his summer designing, constructing and successfully installing the new LFL as part of his requirements to rank as an Eagle Scout.

Additional projects for the Museum included a customized bookshelf for the research library as well as a brochure rack for the gift shop.

About 60 people attended the LFL opening and ribbon cutting.  Guests enjoyed light refreshments, a book exchange, DIY bookmark station and story time with Angela Yuriko-Smith, local author of “The Literary Lizard”.  Members of “Okaloosa Rocks” also joined the celebration helping children paint kindness rocks for sharing throughout the community.

 

The “Little Free Library” and other projects were made possible with generous contributions from community business sponsors Walker Ace Hardware and Compass Builders of Florida.
