Small acts of Kindness: Warren's food library

Posted

A tiny free library on Main Street unexpectedly turned into a charity this week.

Marcie Marine, who installed the small lending library outside her home last year but removed the books when the virus hit, went out to check on it Tuesday and discovered that “a kind soul or two” had filled it with groceries.

“I will do my best to sanitize it as much as possible, but please take what you need, and leave what you can. I love Warren!,” she wrote on Facebook.

The library is across the street from St. Mary of the Bay Church.
