Christopher Karl. Laguna Beach, CA. In honor of American Librarian Meryl Dewey. At a time when books are becoming less and less common as "down time," I think it's important to remind people that a book is a gateway to quiet freedom.

    This is awesome! So proud of my sis and her hubby who created this Little Library!

Lynn Toerge. Pittsburgh, PA. A longtime friend and neighbor, Daryl, died at the young age of 63. She was an avid reader. Creating a Little Free Library in her memory and placing it in our neighborhood park seemed the perfect way to honor her and continue her love of sharing books. Her friend Diana Baier asked her husband Tom to build the library with the assistance of Diana, Lynn Toerge and Mark Honess.

Anatolia Ruiz. Pittsburg, KS. This library is a result of a grant from a local community foundation. The Ruiz family graciously agreed to host the library in their yard. A friend of the family build the library, a local hardware store donated the materials, and the Ruiz kids painted the library. The library was unveiled with a ribbon cutting hosted by The Chamber of Commerce. We are glad to have a Little Library to greet the families new to the neighborhood.

Libbie Romigh. Beloit, OH. A former student of mine, Campbell Tuel, happened upon a Little Free Library near Cincinnati, OH, and sent me a message about it. I had shared my love of reading in my classroom starting back in the 70's, but I recently retired in 2012. My husband is quite handy so I put it on a list for him to build and finally 18 mos. later, Voila! The art of Mary Engelbreit filled my classroom for decades so I felt it only appropriate to feature her illustrations in our design.

Louie Rodriguez. El Paso, TX. The library was built by myself along with the help of the non-profit local organization, WoodWorkers of El Paso. It was designed and painted by a local artist, Roman Martinez, who did the artwork and it will be placed in front of a locally owned shop Tippi Teas. This library was primarily a gift for a dear friend, Paola Lujan who was the inspiration behind this project but is also a gift to our entire community that I hope will be enjoyed for years to come.

Sue Reck. Caledonia, IL. I love the story behind LFLs, and as soon as I heard about them, I knew that I had to have one. I am a lifelong reader currently working as a children's librarian. I painted our LFL to resemble a traditional Swedish stuga, a little red house, to honor my own Swedish heritage as well as that of the woman who taught me to read. Thank you Bev! My husband and I hope to use our love of reading and our LFL to build community and promote literacy in our neighborhood.

Molly Peterson. Oak Harbor, WA. Our Little Free Library is located on a beach road on Whidbey Island where the wind frequently blows off the water. We attached a hummingbird whirligig for a bit of whimsy and to draw attention. We hope that our library will be visited frequently by our neighbors as well as visitors to our West Beach community.
