MORTONS GAP, Ky. (8/9/13) – A “birdhouse library” through Celebrate Literacy Hopkins County has been placed at Frank Stafford City Park in Mortons Gap. The theme of this library is Mortons Gap Pirates, the mascot of the former school. It was painted by Debbie Hoodenpyle. 

The idea behind the project is that patrons will “take a book and leave a book.” Celebrate Literacy Hopkins County is organized through Hopkins County Schools, Madisonville-Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce and other community partners.
