A neighborhood in Fremont has its own library, and Celeste Leider wants more local residents to know about it.
It is a Little Free Library and is located at the end of the driveway at 109 Doty St., in Fremont.
The library, registered as Charter No. 7293, is in memory of Leider’s father, Ben Ben Montbriand.
He is a native of Hudson Wisconsin, where the Little Free Library movement began.
The premise of the community lending library is to take a book or leave a book.
Reid Raschke, a member of the Waupaca Breakfast Rotary Club and a former Weyauwega resident, built the Little Free Library that is located in Fremont.
Is is open 24 hours a day and currently has books for all ages and interests.
The library went up a couple years ago, and Leider said it is on the nonprofit Little Free Library map.
“People from the neighborhood use it,” she said, “but I know there are other people who would use it.”
The mission of the Little Free Library movement is to promote literacy and the love of reading through free book exchanges in communities.
