Saturday's grand opening was "the culmination of over 10 years of effort of fundraising, collecting and organizing books and safely storing them until a physical space could manifest. Since signing a lease for the space in October 2011, volunteers have logged over 1,500 hours organizing the collection, as well as preparing the physical space--painting, moving furniture, assembling shelves, and installing lighting."
"We fully expect the OHF Library will become the 'Heart of the Hearth' for the local Pagan community," said Eric Eldrich, OHF Library Trustee and Former Chair of the OHF Board of Governors.
This is the sort of thing that a strong Pagan community can accomplish, with some organization and dedicated volunteers. Readers, do you know of any similar projects in the works in other cities?
