Just one example of how great Arden is can be contributed to the Arden Boomers Social Group responsible for initiating a Book Exchange in 2017 with the construction and installation of the first Arden "Free Library" located at the entrance of Tuefel Park on Waterview Drive inspired by the desire to offer books to everyone, including children, as a community lending library. Borrowing books is based on the honor system, "Take a Book, Leave a Book". The program has been such a success that additional libraries have been installed. Other locations can be found below.
John Vitello, who lives in Section 1, designed and constructed the box and was aided in the installation by Scott Stose who provided the means for a secure structure.
Other "Little Library" locations in the "Arden Community Book Exchange" are listed below. Be sure to visit one near you, and remember, "Take A Book; Leave A Book." Enjoy!
Arden Community Book Exchange Locations:
Section 1 - Tuefel Park & 944 Waterview Dr
Section 4 - 1032 Plum Creek Dr
Section 5 - Chinaberry Ln & Oakview (across from 1143 Oakview Dr)
