Caroline Nosal's family and friends open new chapter with Little Library at Stoughton Pick 'n Save

Posted: Updated:

STOUGHTON (WKOW) -- A murder victim is being honored with an effort to share her love of reading with the community.
24-year-old Caroline Nosal was shot and killed outside Metro Market on Cottage Grove in February.  Her co-worker, Christopher O'Kroley, is accused of killing her. 
The 26-year-old is in custody awaiting his next court date in June.
Meanwhile, as family and friends continue to grieve, a new project is helping them turn the page. 
A little library is now open right outside the Pick ;n Save.  

"This is really appropriate, we hope people can come to love reading as much as she did," Caroline's father, Jim, said.

Her friend Chris Flannery, a former Co-worker at the Pick 'n Save put together part of the effort.  He even built the little library.

"This has to be here out in the elements forever, and it's for Caroline, I was measuring like 8 times and cutting once, just to make sure it measured up," Flannery said.

Some of Caroline's books will even be available in the Little Library, a cathartic effort that her dad believes is for the best.

"She would have never parted with them herself, but now she'll get to share em with other people," Nosal said.
