Book it

Lily Parker, 14, loads books into the little library she helped build and install at Whistlestop Playground in Spring Lake. Helping is her sister, Cora, 10.

SPRING LAKE — Whistlestop Playground along the Lakeside Trail non-motorized path has not only gained public art this summer, it’s gained reading material.

A local family installed a “little library” there last week, and stuffed it full of children’s books. The books are available for anyone to read while on the playground, or to take home. Donations of books are always welcome.
