Over the weekend, members of the Manassas Write by the Rails group gathered to create free little libraries for the Greater Prince William (GPW) Little Free Libraries project.

Potomac Local has partnered with Write by the Rails and the Prince William Library Foundation to get several little free library locations set up across the greater Prince William area.

Belinda Miller, who has spearheaded Write by the Rail’s involvement in the project, spoke with several group members about the little library locations they would like to build in Manassas.

On Sunday they were able to build a little free library for the Nokesville United Methodist Church, and begin the library for the New School.

More on the project from author Victor Rook:

A first prototype was constructed in just a few hours using donated recycled materials. Authors Dan Verner and Nick Kelly repurposed a few shelving panels and a solid birch top to create one of the now five designated libraries. We are still in need of more wood, hinges, knobs, and plexi glass, so if you have these supplies and would like to donate, email Belinda at belindamiller1@me.com.

This interactive online map will allow you to find all of the little free libraries in our area that are participating in our initiative.

Let us know where you’re putting your own PW Little Free Library! Be sure to include the name, street address, town name, and zip code! 

Also, post pictures of your library on the Library Foundation’s Facebook page.
