Reading your great article on the Little Free Libraries [“Asheville’s Little Free Libraries Make a Big Community Impact,” Aug. 6, Xpress] caused me to feel left out.

Though a registered participant in the LFL program, we have only recently been added to the official site online []. We have a Little Free Library on the south side of Asheville on Breezeway Drive off Sweeten Creek Road at Rathfarnham Circle. It’s been here for two years and provides books for both children and adults.

The library was made from recycled materials by longtime Asheville resident John “Pops” Olup, who is the father of local business owner Peggy Yarborough (Yesterday’s Tree).

I hope to see some new readers at this LFL now that one is known to be on the south side.
