    The Parkside Community Association will hold a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 12:30 pm in front of 310 Woodward Avenue in Buffalo. Delaware District Councilman Michael Locurto, who sponsored this program, will be cutting the ribbon.

    The Parkside Community Association is proud to present our Little Library Initiative. Free libraries are located on the public right of way at 10 locations throughout Parkside. Each station has been constructed as its own small structure, standing on a 4×4 post, resistant to the weather and accessible to all. There will be no registration required, no forms to complete, and no late fees charged. The program is premised on the simple idea that great books are worth sharing. While these libraries are not reserved for members of the PCA or local residents only, we are locating them with an eye towards pedestrian traffic, off the major thoroughfares of Parkside Avenue and Main Street.

    Each library station will be maintained by their local block club or interested volunteers, who will routinely check to see if more books are needed. The PCA in turn will maintain an inventory available to each block club looking for more material.

    Parkside is a special place, full of residents that take great pride in our history and architectural beauty. This initiative is just one more way to create a stronger sense of community and neighborhood identity, to make a public statement that this is an area prized and cared for, and to encourage a love of good literature.
