Officially Up and Ready for Readers

With help from people in our community, we installed our Little Free Library a couple weeks ago. It is fantastic. The library is adorned with our handprints and various wooden pieces we found at the neighborhood paint day. We even have a trio of wooden eggs on the top for our backyard gals. There is a chalkboard for messages. Right now it just encourages people to stop and take or leave a book. Eventually I think we will post little notes and messages about our area or even lists of great books we have read. We have had several people stop and check out the selection. We have an eclectic mix of cookbooks, magazines, children's book and novels.
While perusing the Little Free Library hashtag on Instagram, I noticed a note from Sasquatch Publishing supporting LFLs. I contacted their representative and obtained a box of books for our library. The addition of these titles is amazing. I did take a peek at quite a few and shared them with the kiddos before adding them to our library. I love all the support our endeavor has received and hope it brings a bit more reading to our community.
