The Marblehead Lions display their willingness to serve the community, creating Little Free Libraries around the Village of Marblehead. This special Little Free Library was built by Lions Club members John Englebeck and Tom Henderson at Starcher Village Pro-Hardware in Marblehead.

Under the leadership of the Marblehead Peninsula Lions Club, several Little Free Libraries are springing up around the Marblehead Peninsula. According to Marla Hirt of the Lions Club, the project is designed to inspire readers of all ages, expand minds, promote literacy and bring communities together.

“Our libraries are built and maintained by our club and we register them with the Little Free Library organization,” explained Hirt. By registering locations with Little Free Library, each may be found on the Little Free Library website map on the Internet.

The Marblehead Peninsula Club has received permission from the Danbury Township Trustees to place Little Free Libraries at the Bark Until Dark Dog Park, Danbury Township Hall and Lake Point Park.

The first library was installed outside Starcher Village Pro-Hardware in Marblehead. Tom Cailor has led the Lions Club design team and was assisted by members John Englebeck, Tom Henderson and Marla Hirt.
