PAOLA — The Paola Free Library is “where community happens,” as its logo states, but thanks to a recently constructed Little Free Library at Lake Miola, the library now has another access point to share material with the community.

The new Little Free Library can be found right in front of the Paola Dog Park. It is easily spotted via the studious dog gracing the right side of the hutch or by the vibrant colors enveloping the entirety of it.

Abby Richmond is a Paola High School graduate who is studying journalism in college.
