A popular open library at St. John’s Church Killybegs has been closed due to an act of vandalism.
The church community were disheartened on Wednesday to see that their ‘Little Free Library’, which stands at the gate of the church, had its door broken in.
The St. John’s library was opened in March 2018 as a way of the church giving back to the community. It was accessible 24/7 for everyone in the community to take an adult or children’s book to enjoy. The library was regularly restocked with titles to entertain and educate locals.
However, due to the damage caused, the library has been closed until further notice.
Rev Lindsey Farrell issued a public message on Facebook yesterday, saying: “Disappointing to hear of the vandalism of our Little Free Library this morning. We are so thankful for the support of the community and hope to have it back up and running – and in even better shape – very soon!
“We pray that those who carried out the act would see the error of their ways and instead use their energies and time in ways that would further enhance our beautiful town.”Tags:
