The day after adding new signage to the Rotary Club of Little River’s first Little Free Library, the club received a call from the Historic Myrtle Beach Colored School Museum and Education Center about a donation of books and arts and craft supplies for the club’s literacy projects. Whie the center is currently closed due to the pandemic, the center is busily remodeling its facilities to launch new educational programs when it reopens. The remodeling has resulted in a number of children’s books and arts and crafts supplies being available for other projects suchs as the club’s literacy projects, including the Little Free Library.
Past President Vickie Harrison and President-elect Joann Stevens accepted two car loads of books and other supplies from the center. These books will be used to add to the club’s existing and future Little Free Libraries and for distribution to other programs and schools in the club’s service area. The arts and craft supplies will be used to supplement the needs of children who will be remote-learning this fall for their arts and crafts projects.
The Historic Myrtle Beach Colored School Museum and Education Center is located at 900 Dunbar St in Myrtle Beach. More information about the center can be found on the City of Myrtle Beach website at
