A project initiated by the Neepawa Public Library and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Neepawa will provide a new service to the town.

Similar to the “Take a Book-Leave a Book program which has been successfully operating inside Arts Forward, this project will provide reading material 24 hours.

They would be very popular with campers and visitors. There are many different designs. Artwork is being provided by Neepawa & Area Art Club. This first example was designed and executed by Betty Walker. They will be specially treated, so books will be protected in all seasons.

We will have a variety of books including, childrens'.
