Parks-Bentley in the News
There is a new building on the Parks-Bentley property, but this one is only two feet tall. The mini-Parks-Bentley house is a Little Free Library. The back of the box has doors and is separated into two book sections – the one on the left for children and the other for adults and is registered as part of the nationwide Little Free Library network.
