Little Free Library

Wilson has had fun visiting lots of the lending libraries in our neighborhood called "Little Free Libraries" organized by this non-profit. We thought we should have one in our own neighborhood as well.  We arranged to fund the construction if our neighbor across the street (Hank aka MH) would build it.

We thought the HOA couldn't possibly decline if it was the same paint colors as the clubhouse. That was fortuitous since Hank found the excess paint from the clubhouse under its sink! Even red for the door!

Yesterday, Saturday 19 February, we all got together to put up the library. It is registered as Library Charter #139343 and should be on the map very soon!

What a great idea to make one for your neighborhood! There is one in a nearby park here, and I just stopped to see what was in it yesterday. There are a couple of books I'd be interested in, but didn't have any with me to leave. Next time!
