Doppelgänger Libraries

Some of you may wondering what on earth is a doppelgänger. Well, it's one of our favorite words and it is used to refer to "a ghostly counterpart or duplicate of a living person." So, all of the Little Free Libraries on this board bear a striking resemblance to the building where they reside.

Deb Fritz. Evansville, WI. Scott Brummond built nine Little Free Libraries in the city of Evansville. This LFL is special, because it is in front of his own house, and...it looks just like his house! This Little Free Library is visited frequently, because Scott's wife, Nancy, is a second grade teacher at Levi Leonard Elementary School in Evansville. A big thank you goes out to Scott for his ongoing contribution to literacy in the community.

Cathy Walsh. Hinsdale, IL. My Little Free Library was getting too full and disorganized. So I asked my father, Joseph Dolack, to build me a "children's addition." Both are replicas of my house in the background. Aren't they cool?

Laurel Maguire. Ann Arbor, MI. e read a lot and love to share our favorites with friends and neighbors so we thought this would be a great thing to build for our front yard. We used scraps from a recent addition to make the library so it looks like our house. We also have adjustable shelving to be sure to have room for children's books as well as books for grown ups. We've seen neighbors of all ages borrowing and sharing books. It has been so much fun!

Keith Hammitt. Muskego, WI. Muskego Troop 18 scout Miles Bognar built four Little Free Libraries for the City of Muskego as part of his Eagle Scout project.  With the guidance his grandfather Harvey Heideman, Miles designed each library to match the building of the business or organization that sponsored its construction. Troop 18 scouts helped with assembly and painting of the libraries. This library was sponsored by Muskego Tire and Auto.

Charles Hammonds. Eugene, OR.  	 We live near a very popular bike trail that is used by many of our neighbors for riding, running and walking. Since we have a steady stream of passers by, it is a great location for a LFL. Our Little Free Library is a much smaller version of our house. Within an hour of installing our LFL we noticed a young girl browsing the books. She made her selection and waved as she walked away. The next day she returned for another book and left 5 books!

Sherri Saines. Logan, OH. We started with a plastic box tied to the tree, but it broke. Hubby made me The Real Thing for Christmas 2013. It was a complete surprise! I painted it to look like a miniature of our house.
