CLARKS SUMMIT — The Rotary Club of the Abingtons held a picnic with style Thursday, June 11 at the Finish Shop Pocket Park on Depot Street, the grand occasion of which was the official opening of the Little Free Library, located in front of the park’s white picket fence.

Rotarian Eileen Christian cut the yellow ribbon wrapped around the wooden box with glass windows and a door opening to two small shelves. She placed the first book into the library, a family Bible, in hopes that someone might take it and write their family names inside.

The library is now open to the public to do just that — take a book and leave book. Or, pick one out to browse while spending some time in the new pocket park.
