SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Beagle School is proud to announce the establishment of the area’s newest Little Free Library located in the front of the school at 115 Regent Street in Saratoga Springs. The School opened the library officially on Friday, May 22 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration with children. A “Little Free Library” is a “take a book, return a book” gathering place in the community where anyone can stop by and pick out a book or two. 

“The Beagle School’s philosophy of children learning through discovery and self-exploration fits nicely with a Little Free Library,” said school director Fran Rauchwerger, “ as children can discover new things and go anywhere through books.”   The library was constructed by her father and resembles the Beagle School.  She plans on rotating books seasonally.
