Historic Apollo School's Little Lending Library -- even though our doors aren't open right now and we can't get together, we would like to help you ease the tedium of the "staying-in-place" phase of the Coronavirus pandemic by inviting you to stop by the school and take advantage of our Little Lending Library, which is located on the Historic Apollo School site, 9141 S.E. Apollo Street in Hobe Sound.  It is outside and several feet away from the eastern side of the building, where it is easy to practice social distancing.  During this time, please take some books (no need to leave any) and after you are done, share them with family and friends.
