Community Members Invited to Take, Give Children’s Books at Waterman’s Little Free Library Community Members Invited to Take, Give Children’s Books at Waterman’s Little Free Library: Last year, Waterman Primary School teacher Pam Anastasio and her first-grade students read “The Little Library,” a story about a father and son who built a hut where children could exchange books. The books do not need to be returned, and additional books may be donated for others to enjoy.   Inspired by the story, Anastasio started to consider what a similar hut at Skaneateles would look like.   “After reading the story, I thought it would be great to have one at school for the whole community to use,” she said.   Anastasio wrote a grant to the Skaneateles Education Foundation (SEF) to purchase the materials needed for a hut at Waterman. SEF awarded her the funds, and the hut was formally opened on Monday, October 24 in a ceremony with ...
