Bill Fiorini. Columbus, OH. This Hobbit-inspired bookshare celebrates the life's work of JRR Tolkien. Our friends Sandy Coen and Florence Jain hatched the theme for this library. When Sandy (pictured above) crafted the structure and offered it at the church auction, little did he know how high our passion for libraries and hobbits would drive up our bidding. As soon as the dragon Smaug came to rest on opening day of our little library, neighbors and passersby were drawn to explore.
