The Little Free Library is open and now available in Prentiss.
A ribbon cutting was held Friday on the lawn at Prentiss City Hall.
This was the idea of Tameka Mitchell, who contacted Prentiss Mayor Charley Dumas in hopes of putting a library in the community.

“My personal goal is to empower a generation of confident readers,” said Mitchell.
Mitchell grew up in the library and has written a children’s book, “My Super Mom and Her Sidekick Crew.”
“My entire family has always focused on reading, and I want people to get excited about reading.”
Although Mitchell is from Georgia, all of her Brown and Bramlett family members, are from Prentiss.
“This is a great way for the community to be engaged in literacy. If the library is closed come down to the little free library donate or take a book.”
The Little Free Library is proudly donated by Willie and Garnell Brown, who are Mitchell’s grandparents.
“I am so Grateful that Mayor Dumas has allowed us to partner with City Hall and celebrate literacy in Prentiss.”
The library is open for all ages and the books are always free. Book donations are welcome. Find other book-sharing boxes with Little Free Library world map at littlefreelibrary.org or with the Little Free Library mobile app.
“People that I have talked to in the community about it are excited about this,” said Prentiss Mayor Charley Dumas. “We want to row this community and grow its education we are thankful for you and Tameka’s efforts to make this happen.”
