Little Libraries On The Trail

The Peabody Institute Library of Danvers has installed seven “Little Libraries of Danvers” throughout Town to promote reading and help build community. These “take one, leave one” free book exchanges were built by carpentry students at Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School out of salvaged library bookshelves.

Two of the seven Little Libraries are located along the Rail Trail, one along the trail by the Hobart Street parking lot, and the other along the trail at Putnamville Park.

If you visit one of the Little Libraries, please take a look at the books inside and feel free to take any that catch your interest. If you have appropriate books you’d like to give away, please feel free to drop a few off for your neighbors to enjoy.
