Stanton Daily Grind adds book exchange to menu

The Stanton Daily Grind in New Stanton is now a “Little Free Library” site.

The Stanton Daily Grind in New Stanton is now host of a new Little Free Library , located between the coffee shop and Hepler’s Hardware at 814 Route 119 North.

The global nonprofit organization fosters neighborhood book exchanges with a “Take a Book — Share a Book” philosophy.

The new steward, Stanton Daily Grind coffee shop, offers patrons a large shelf of free books inside the store. By offering an additional book exchange, employees say they hope to encourage visitors to read after regular business hours.

”We welcome a lot of distant travelers, especially from the adjacent interstates,” manager Carrie Boots says in a release. “If a visitor comes by when we are closed, we still want them to have access to fresh reading material and to feel welcome.”

The Westmoreland Library Network and historian Jennifer Sopko, author of “Idlewild: History and Memories of Pennsylvania’a Oldest Amusement Park,” are among the early book donors, the release adds.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
