As a part of their 30 Days of Kindness campaign, Pie Bar celebrated Day 5 with a ribbon-cutting for a little free “pie-brary” in front of their Woodstock bakery shop.

Visitors were encouraged to drop by for a free reception of coffee and pie and to participate by taking a book and leaving a book.

“Pie Bar is absolutely one of our great destination businesses,” Visit Woodstock GA Marketing Manager Stacy Brown said to the crowd. “They are one of the reasons that Woodstock is known as an organic and authentic city.”

So far, Pie Bar’s 30 days of kindness has consisted of free scoops of ice cream, a fundraiser for a local family, performing random acts of kindness, collecting food for Downtown Woodstock’s “little free pantry” and writing thank you cards.

“We are so appreciative to Visit Woodstock GA for allowing us to do this ribbon-cutting,” owner Lauren Bolden said. “The silliness and joy behind it and the fact that something as simple as a little free ‘pie-brary’ would bring so many people out is what makes this town so fantastic.”

Manager Vivian El- Salawy said, “We hope that (the pie-brary) continues to bring people joy and gives everyone something that they need, whether it’s a good laugh or a good cry but most importantly, a good book.”

The 30 days of kindness campaign will run for the month of June, with a new activity every day. For more information, visit
