Orcas Senior Center is excited to announce the installation of a Little Free Library at Orcas Senior Center. Many thanks to former OSC employee, Vicki O’Keefe (pictured), now Orcas Island School District Librarian, for envisioning this project. Also, thanks to Stu Stephens for masterfully building it complete with cedar shake roofing. And thank you to OSC’s Art with Carla class, Carla Stanley, Karen Johnston, Barb Garrett, Jari Brenner, Sharon Inman, and Kim Rose, who artfully designed and painted the library with images from classic books and local Orcas authors. Orcas District Committee members, Allan Rosato and Darcey Miller, installed and weatherized the library to complete the project.

So, on your next trip to town, stop by Orcas Senior Center at 62 Henry Road, borrow a book, and check out our Little Free Library masterpiece. While you’re at it, how many classic books can you find in the artwork?
