Steve and Ellie Peck. Bremerton, WA. We want to change the face of this neighborhood and lift up our community! With the new park across the street and lots of pedestrian traffic this is a great place for Bremerton's 1st Little Free Library. Steve built this library and did a phenomenal job with every detail. From roofing to weather stripping our library is rock solid and Designed to last! This was his birthday present to his wife Ellie and she is thrilled to have this in her front yard.
Elizabeth Maltby. New Orleans, LA. I asked my husband to help our boys make me one for Mother's Day. They did a wonderful job making it! The plexi roof even protects the door a bit and lets in some light from the streetlight above. Before the project was actually finished my father passed away of cancer. He was a huge reader and would have loved to have books so readily available in his neighborhood. This library is officially dedicated to Allan Robert Engle.
S. Goswick. Dallas, TX. We have an avid young reader in our family who has a hard time getting rid of anything, including books! But trading books in a neighborhood Little Free Library was something to get excited about. There may be no better way to encourage a young reader than a front yard Little Free Library. We hope our library will encourage reading of all ages from children to adults, and we keep various types of books inside.
The Free Little Library by Stereotank encourages people to (quite literally) pop their head in, pick out a book or leave one behind. With small windows in and out, it remains semi-private without feeling claustrophobic in the face of its small volume.
Carol Lathrop. Marion, OH. Located on the corner of a cul-de-sac, our LFL contains bookmarks explaining the LFL, a regularly rotated reading quotation on the door, and a water bowl for dogs. A notepad provides an opportunity for feedback. The notes left by patrons have been priceless. We are delighted that this project has created an opportunity for neighbors to meet neighbors, and for books to be displayed right out in the front yard!
Joyce Graham. Clearfield, PN. This Little Free Library has been very well received in the neighborhood. I have been telling everybody that I run into about it! Yesterday at a yard sale I mentioned my LFL to a woman and she gave me all of the books that she had out for sale. She said that she would gladly support anybody that is promoting literacy and community. This has been a wonderful experience. I hope to make this a success. Thank you so much for the inspiration and for the support!
