We Have a New Little Free Library!

Thursday, April 20, 2017

In 1915 the Green Bay Art Club (now the Green Bay Art Colony) was established by nine local women who launched their first exhibit featuring rare and historically significant objects in the basement of the former Kellogg Library.  This exhibit was the birth of the Neville Public Museum of Brown County as we know it today.

On April 23, 1983 the Neville Public Museum of Brown County opened the doors of our current building to the public.   In celebration of our building’s anniversary and of our continued partnership with the Green Bay Art Colony we installed a new Little Free Library on our grounds.  Our Little Free Library is modeled after the building that started it all, the former Kellogg Library, and honors the Green Bay Art Colony.  

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange.  Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called “mini-town squares.”  We're so excited to bridge communities and connect generations through our new Little Free Library!
