The HCCA board voted to fund a Little Free Library at Spruce Hill Apartments in Haw Creek, a 174-unit complex serving about 500 low- and moderate-income residents. HCCA board member Liz Polfus took on the construction job and, using her fine art skills, created a beautiful little library with a theme of colorful native plants.
To maximize the reading opportunities the Little Library provides, we turned to the Friends of East Asheville Library for help. They were eager to provide books that would best serve the many children and teens living at the complex.
Liz, along with a few Haw Creek friends and neighbors, installed the Little Free Library on October 21. The residents and management of Spruce Hill now have a new asset that will strengthen the culture of the apartment complex for years to come.
Meaghen McCoy and Carol Waters, the managers at Spruce Hill Apartments, said “We ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE, LOVE IT!!!! It is more than we could have imagined. Thank you and your team for all of your hard work and it will be used and loved for many years!!!”
