Forty apply for Little Free Libraries
Bergeron has been coordinating the program in conjunction with the Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse Heros Program and the Hillside Communities retirement center.
The first of the 18 was installed on Valentine's day at the Wessels residence in McMinnville. It joins one installed earlier at the home of former McMinnville Public Library Director Jill Poyer — the county's first — as a retirement gift from her staff.
Bergon said applications have been received from all parts of the county. She said Lowe's will handle installation once the sites have been selected.
