The latest Little Free Library has been placed in the lobby of the Tullahoma Police Department.  The Tullahoma Sunrise Rotary club has undertaken the Little Free Library project for Tullahoma and soon surroundings areas to promote reading and literacy.  It also shows teamwork with the local Literacy Council which the Sunrise Rotary sponsors.  The Literacy council sponsors a used book store and this will be the source of the books for the Little Free Library.  At this time the Sunrise Rotary has twelve (12) libraries planned and in the building phase.
The Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories.  In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.
The addition of the Tullahoma Police Department library will provide not only books, but applications for the Literacy Council free book program. Many children come to the police department for various reasons, the books will provide a welcome and enjoyable reading opportunity.  Reading is the gateway to information, adventure, travel, and recreation.  As the Police Department sign says, “Stop, and Read”.  The Tullahoma Sunrise Rotary appreciates the Police Department’s participation in this program and encourages others to consider a Little Free Library.
