In the News: Fredericksburg, VA

fredericksburgDavid Deaderick, 16, pauses for a photo in his front yard on Washington Avenue in Fredericksburg on the first day of school. He’s standing next to the family’s Little Free Library.

“Many, many people take pictures of it, stop, read some, then come back with a book and take one,” said David’s mom, Caroline, in an email.

Caroline’s husband, Bob, added shingles, stained the structure and mounted it in the corner of their yard, she said.

Caroline Deaderick said her late mother, Mary Jean Hatch, had given her hundreds of children’s books, which are now being recycled through the little library.

“It’s so fun and makes me so happy to dedicate it to my elementary school teacher mom,” Deaderick added.
