Little Free Library coming to St. Luke's 


Our LFL will look something
 like this

The Bayou Manor Residents Association and St. Luke's are helping to make possible a community outreach project called "Little Free Library".  The "Little Free Library" program is a worldwide mission that promotes literacy and the love of reading among children and adults by building free book exchanges.


The little library is under construction by Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor resident Mr. Ken Caughron.  Within the next few weeks the little library will be installed on the property of St. Luke's. Children and adults from neighborhoods surrounding St. Luke's will be able to visit the little library and take a book home to read and leave a book for others to take home.  The little library will be maintained by volunteers.  


Books are needed!  If you have children's books, novels, history books, art books - or any kind of book in good condition - please consider a donation to the "Little Free Library" project.  You may bring book donations to St. Luke's Monday - Friday between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm or on Sundays.


Thank you for your consideration!  We want this project to be bring on the books! For more information see

A Closing Prayer    

Almighty God, you have called us to serve you,
yet without your grace
we are unable to please you.
Mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit
may in all things direct and rule our hearts;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.                                          from The Book of Common Worship
