    Dinnaken Little Free Library Ribbon Cutting This Week! 


    Dinnaken Little Free Library has been put up! 
    It's located across from CVS on Ontario Street (technical address: 311 Ontario Street SE.) 

    We could not be more excited to have our very own little free library! One of our very own residents and local artist painted it and it was custom built by one of our staff members! 

    We will be hosting a Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting: Thursday, October 27th at 3pm. Join us for Cider in the Dinnaken Lobby before heading outside for the Ribbon Cutting.

    Please feel free to leave books or take a book!
