    Nancy Lindquist. Minneapolis, MN. Sarah discovered this bread warmer at a thrift shop and presented it to Nancy for a birthday gift...the 2 had been dreaming of making one available in this walking neighborhood...lots of families, children, and shoppers pass by daily....Sarah decorated it and built the base and dug the hole! Nancy keeps watch while she tends to the gardens and both encourage neighbors and customers to keep the books coming and going.

    I bet your town has a few of these lying around. Try acquiring one, adding chalkboard paint to the side and turning it into a Little Free Library!

    Margaret Atkins. Winchester, TX. We decided to build a library that reflected our small community. A chicken coop theme fit us perfectly! We took an old bookcase, put on Plexiglass front doors, mounted it on a sturdy box, added a rusty tin metal roof and it became our library. Lighting and fans make it comfortable and convenient for all seasons. We had a dedication at which 36 residents met for a potluck meal and stocking the library shelves. We are open for readers, young and old!

    Mattie Azurmendi. Summit, NJ. Our Little Free Library was our the summer project of my 4 and 6 year old boys and myself. Once ready I drew all of our favorite characters on the sides of the big mailbox we repurposed into our library. My favorite is Eloise. My 4 year old love the Pete the Cat and my 6 year old is partial to Elephant and Piggie.

    Marion Poellot. Red Wing, MN. My library is a converted camper oven. I discovered it in the back of an antique shop in town. It has a door that latches securely and there are two small oval windows in the door. There is also a small thermometer in the door. I think that adds to its charm. I painted it red because it's a library. It SHOULD be read. Because it is an oven it has a rack. The rack holds the grown-up books. The children's books are on the lower level.

    Robie Calcaterra. Spokane, WA. This little library is located in our family owned and operated bakery. We found an oversized vintage bookcase to match the decor and it happens to hold over a hundred books. They were collected from varying sources : some favorites from our personal collections, a few duplicates from thrift and vintage sources...most were collected over the summer and fall while we were getting the bakery ready to open.
