Little Free Library Opens Nov. 25 at Tuckerton Seaport

Nov 01, 2017

Join the Tuckerton Seaport on Saturday, Nov. 25 at noon for the grand opening of the Little Free Library located on the visitor center front porch. The library will provide a neighborhood sharing program for book lovers of all ages.

Participating is easy. Just stop by the center any time and pick up or drop off an adult or children’s book.  The library will be open 24/7. 

Kean University junior Jacquelyn Dringus, a Manahawkin resident and Seaport volunteer, was instrumental in the creation of the new library. Dringus was looking for a way to give back in her community as part of her Kappa Delta Pi/Delta Rho Chapter duties. A special education major, she knows how learning to enjoy reading early can make learning more fun and students more successful. What began as an idea for a book drive quickly grew into a plan to launch the Seaport library.

To kick off the library, admission to the Seaport is complimentary with a book donation. Book donations are accepted daily in the Seaport gift shop front porch drop box.

The Little Free Library is a national program created to build community, spark creativity and inspire readers. The Seaport is a registered location for a Little Free Library. This program has inspired over 50,000 book exchange locations across the country. To find other locations, visit littlefreelibrary.org/ourmap/.
