New “Little Free Library” pops up in GC

Michaela Kendall

GRUNDY CENTER - A book in the hand is worth two on the shelf, and one local resident is hoping to put more books into the hands of community members with his very own “Little Free Library.”
After retiring from a long career as librarian at the Grundy Center Secondary School, Don Osterhaus is keeping his love for books and reading alive through a “Little Free Library” located outside his house at 306 E H Avenue.
Osterhaus says the library was a gift from his daughter and son-in-law, who wanted to get him something different for his birthday this year.
“I’ve seen the little free libraries before, but never thought of doing one myself,” he said. “My daughter and son-in-law got this for me for my birthday; they know I love books, and being a librarian it was very special to me.”
