A Little Free LibraryThe Smith-McMillan Chapter of La Grange recently hosted speakers Mary Lou McNair and Katy Michalke who shared information about their local Lending Libraries. The Little Free Library non-profit organization is a book exchange with more than 60,000 locations in 80 countries. The chapter donated over $1,000 worth of new and gentle used books to the speakers’ Little Free Libraries.

The new Little Free Library at the historic churchChapter members, Jeri Lafferty and Pastor Lemae Higgs, were so inspired that Ben Lafferty then crafted a beautiful Little Free Library (Charter Number 62147) for the grounds of the 150-year-old United Evangelical Lutheran Church, Swiss Alp, Schulenburg, TX.  The Smith-McMillan Chapter of La Grange ladies have been very generous in donating inspirational materials for this new adventure in literacy outreach with a spiritual flavor!
