Small bookstores are popping up everywhere these days and thanks to the Oneonta Rotary Club, there are now three more bookshops in the city of Oneonta. The idea of a small library is to take a book and leave a book. This course encourages free reading and participation.
As part of Rotary’s centenary celebration, club members Dave Rowley and John Maine and President of Carleton Cleveland installed a small library at Valleyview Elementary School, Riverside Elementary School and Greater Plains Elementary School with photos posted on the Ononta Rotary Club Facebook page.

This is the Oneonta Rotary’s final centenary project to be completed, honoring 100 years of service in the Oneonta community.

Most people think of the Oneonta Rotary Club for a foreign student exchange program that has been going on for many years, however, Oneonta Rotary is a service organization that does much more than that as we can see with the Little Club Library Project. If you follow the Oneonta Rotary Club on Facebook, you can see the ways these volunteers are working to strengthen our community.
