Thank you everyone for being here and thank you Irmo Community Park for giving us kids a safe place:
• To learn
• To play
• To run around
• To be outdoors in nature
• To watch tadpoles turn into frogs
• To play inside the yellow house
• To build forts
• To have parties
• To make friends
• And basically just to be kids!

School of the Minds families love the Irmo Community Park and we would like to gift the Town of Irmo with this Little Free Library. A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange and has been called a “mini-town square” because it is a way for the community to share ideas and stories. With the help of Home Depot, our families have worked together to obtain the materials, build, paint, and purchase a charter sign for this Little Free Library. There are over 50,000 registered Little Free Libraries in over 70 countries around the world and ours is Charter # 58,909. May our Little Free Library donation be a positive addition to the Irmo Community Park.

ALSO SPECIAL THANKS TO ARTHUR AND ASHLEY AT THE LEXINGTON HOME DEPOT!
