    Gail Summerford. Bakersfield, CA. Our library was established in memory of 2 tireless advocates for children - Mary Ann Albanes and Wendy Wayne (www.wendyswordsli...) by 3 retiring child development center managers who thought it would be the perfect place to donate dozens of books collected over their combined 115 years in early care and education. It was built by Gail's dad and it is in the courtyard of the Bakersfield College Child Development Center.

    Holly Lamb. Howell, MI. Funding for our Little Free Library was provided when the Friends of the Howell Carnegie Library received the Metro Detroit Book and Author Society’s Dick Johnston’s award. This partnership allows us to extend our Family Place Library resources to parents using the services at MI Works! and Mott Community College.

    Karen Brunner. Hudson, WI. I am an academic librarian and grew up with a mom who would drop everything to take me to the library. Now my husband and I are doing our best to instill a love of books and libraries in our two young daughters. A big thank you to my dad for making me such a wonderful library!

    This. Is. Perfection.

    I know I have a lot of projects but @Little Free Library will definitely get built this summer.

    So perfect. We regularly get so wrapped up in books that we forget where we are...

    Neighborhood Book Exchange ~ Simply brilliant!

    Nancy Smith. Old Town, ME. My mother passed away five years ago and we had been thinking about how we could best honor her memory. She was an avid reader. We started the library with books that we had recently read and enjoyed. It has been open just over a week and seems to have developed a dedicated following here at the lake. We have witnessed both "summer people" and year round residents taking advantage of the Little Free Library.

    Phyllis Gorshe. Dunedin, FL. This Little Free Library was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Dunedin. It was decorated by the staff and teens at the Martin Luther King Jr. Center.

    Jennine Duda. Minneapolis, MN. I've been enamored of these little libraries since I first learned of them. For my birthday last year, my husband built me one of my very own, utilizing the discarded basement windows from a neighbor's renovation. It. Is. AWESOME! My mother was a librarian and would be very proud of the variety of media we stock... books (naturally), but also videos, CDs, vinyl, magazines. This library is the gift that will keep on giving for years to come!

    Matt Kouba. Thousand Oaks, CA. This Library was built in 2012 and WAS a traveling LFL...it went to Burning Man twice!

It sits in the patio and provides for people waiting for classes to start, or the theater to open or during a break from play practice.
