    Good evening!
    I work at the Brightside Academy across the street from the lovely Tatum Park and I am so delighted with what has transpired there with such beauty and food for our neighborhood. I am writing because I have been considering trying to work with Free Little Libraries to establish a free library in this neighborhood. I realized that the park might be the perfect place to host a free library. I would love to discuss this possibility with someone affiliated with Tatum Park. Just so that you are aware, I have not yet mentioned this to the leadership at Brightside Academy. This is a personal mission of mine since I wholeheartedly believe in the power of books in the hands of children. Please let me know if this is an endeavor that you would be willing to consider. Thank you for your time! Ann Link
