Now neighbors can share their favorite books through a Little Free Library in Lilburn City Park. Visitors are encouraged to "take a book, return a book" at this Little Free Library location along the path that winds around the Lilburn City Park lawn.

For her Girl Scout Gold Award project, Ambassador Girl Scout Jolee McManus, a senior at Brookwood High School, designed and installed the library.

It requires more than 80 hours of project work and must address a community concern or issue that is of interest to the Girl Scout.

Little Free Libraries are being installed all over the country, started by the originator Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin. Now there are more than 15,000 Little Free Libraries worldwide. Lilburn's library is registered on the official site at
