A well used and loved Little Free Library in Ridgecrest was saved after the property where it was located was going to be demolished.

Neighbors decided to work together to save it. Three of them got together and moved the library a block up the street, to a new home.

The Little Free Library was built and installed in its original location by the Scully family.

Still a Shoreline resident, Keith Scully said: 
"We built that as a family project with my mom and stepdad. They’ve both since passed, and I have amazing memories both of constructing it with them and of watching neighbors come to get and leave books.

"I’m delighted you managed to preserve it. And yes, we moved – with new twins we outgrew the house and now live in Richmond Beach. But we miss Ridgecrest! Such amazing people."

According to the Ridgecrest neighborhood association,

"It is now open for business. Be sure to stop by and check out a book or 2 and drop off a couple in trade."
