The Centerville-Washington Park District is pleased to announce the addition of the fourth Little Free Library within their park system, at Yankee Park. This project is a true community partnership, having been requested and funded by the Penbrooke Garden Club, designed and built by a group of Wright State University MBA students, and will be kept stocked with books by the Friends of the Washington Centerville Public Library. The cheerful sunflower design is a nod to the Garden Club, and it includes separate spaces for children’s books and books for adults. Yankee Park is located at 7500 Yankee Street in Centerville.

Iron Horse Park is part of the Centerville-Washington Park District and is located at 6161 Millshire Drive. The park has its own replica of Old Ironsides in honor of the Dayton-Cincinnati Railroad that ran north and south through Washington Township. The south end of the track bed is preserved at Big Bend Park and the north end of the track bed is preserved at Iron Horse Park. Check out these photos of local kids enjoying the Little Free Library!
Schoolhouse Park is part of the Centerville-Washington Park District and is located at 1875 Nutt Road. The park was named after Schoolhouse No. 1, the one-room schoolhouse that once stood across the street from the park entrance. Appropriately, the structure of the wooden library is a one-room school house balanced on the other side by an outhouse which would have been of the time period. This Little Free Library was the first in Centerville/Washington Township. Check out these photos of local kids enjoying the Little Free Library!
