New little place to read


The Dedham Square Artist Guild Member, Cindy Mootz is painting this little Library. It is slated to be put up near Terri's Market in the Manor Neighborhood in Dedham. 

Cindy is a longtime resident of Dedham and a member of the Dedham Square Artist Guild

Read about Cindy Mootz here

The Program was started in June 2013



Dedham Library Innovation Team & Dedham High School in association with the Dedham Square Artist Guild are excited to be the stewards of the Dedham Little Free Libraries Project!

The mission of the Little Free Library Movement is to:

• Promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.

• Foster a sense of community and connection as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.

The initiative was founded by Todd Bol who designed the first “little library” on a post as a tribute to his mother, who was a book lover and school teacher. The original goal was the creation of 2,150 Little Libraries, which would surpass the number of libraries founded by Andrew Carnegie. As of June 2016, there are over 40,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries around the world.

Dedham's initiative was spearheaded by Emily Gibbons and Paul Reynolds.

A full list of locations listed here

Libraries are painted by local Artists Marietta Apollonio, Susan Hoy, Rev. Rali Weaver, Lisa Houck, Luke BarryAuthor/Illustrator Peter H. Reynolds, Dedham High School, Class of 2016 alum Leah Badessa, Hannah Romanish, and Rachel Strykowski, and Clarissa Robyn

Artist Favorites

Kevin Becker on Rali Weaver’s dolls:

I love Rali’s Dolls because they are the perfect respite from our high tech world for the 21st Century child. Blending important themes for our times e.g. Diversity, Recycle/Reduce/Reuse, Locally made...she has created childhood keepsakes that will be treasured for decades to come. 



Jane Wojik on Sue Hoy’s painting:

Sue Hoy’s use of broad brush strokes and vibrant colors bring a playfulness to her work. Her animals come to life and this painting makes me feel the joy that chickens bring to my friends who raise them.

This piece by Cindy fascinates me. The unexpected yellows, blues and reds give a whole new meaning to a rainy day. And who are these anonymous people? Where are they going? Mysterious.

SHOW DATES: MAY 4 to JUNE 3

A SPECIAL EXHIBITION at the Dedham Community Theatre!!


Water is transparent and therefore takes on the colors around it: the blue of the sky, a reflection of a mountain, or the darkness of an approaching storm. We swim in the water or gaze at it from a sandy beach. There is an underwater world and a vastness that comes from sailing on it. What does Water mean to you?
