⭐️Monday March 15 - Conference Week Kick-Off and Virtual Happy Hour Social

7-9 PM

Please join us as we Kick Off Conference Week, laying out the programs for the week, celebrate District accomplishments and...

Showcase the Little Lending Libraries (LLL) Challenge. 

Marking the culmination of the LLL Challenge, Rotary clubs throughout the District will virtually showcase and celebrate the results of their labors.

From the get go, DG Frank has urged clubs to find ways to increase Rotary’s presence in their communities. As one way to do this, he offered his Little Lending Libraries (LLL) Challenge. This involves each club investing a few dollars and some sweat equity to build and decorate at least one Rotary-branded little library for installation in its community. LLL are weather-proof structures that make a small collection of books available 24/7 to children and families. Take a book, leave a book, and spread the word that literacy is important for all. Little Lending Library designed by Rotarian Scott Marcin & built by Rotary Club of Amherst South members & friends. Little Lending Library Manuel.
