OLD TOWN LANSING—Old Town has a library so small one could walk right past it without realizing it is even there. What It Is
The Old Town Book Exchange is a small, colorful box outside of the Polka-Dots Bead-a-full Boutique in Old Town, Lansing. On any given day it is filled with an assortment of books that may be borrowed by any person in town. According to Reva Darling Goucher, an employee at Polka-Dots Bead-a-full Boutique, the book exchange was created as part of a partnership with other citizens interested in encouraging people to read in Old Town. “It was a good way to promote literacy in the community,” Goucher said.
