I'll give it a try if I can get my brother to build it. We can stick posts into the ground, but neither of us is capable of building a water-proof box with glass door(s).
We used to donate our books to various places around town when we lived in Juneau. You could barely walk into a building without seeing a lending library somewhere. Down here not so much.
Husband isn't really into driving places just to give away books. Maybe one of my getting-out goals could be to make him take me around. Or, to make him feel like it might be worthwhile, we have a couple of used bookstores around town that we could take the books to. Ours always still look like new when we finish them.
Even on a small scale I personally think the Little Library would work, and make your neighbours smile! There are some simple plans on the Little Free Library website for building your own, or you can purchase one from them. We didn't use glass in the door of ours, we bought a sheet of plexiglass. If it starts to go cloudy we will replace it with toughened glass I expect.
If anyone is thinking about their own Little Free Library I would urge you to read all the info on their website! If you don't go ahead it still make for interesting reading!!
I'd love to have one of your little libraries close to where I live.
Give me a message on facebook sometime about when you're free - I'm only actually in Lincoln for the next couple of months then I'm back up north for Summer and then I'm moving down to KENT! (!) :(
It is two years today since Fairy left and while I still grieve and I still can't find the words . . .
I try to remember her and be happy. She was loved and loved in return.
Today is a day for Fairy, filled with Fairy's Fairy-ness and everything Fairy. And love xxxx
So, this is also Peter Gurney's birthday, and the day people all over the world light candles, at 8 p.m., in remembrance. Just imagine the coincidence. . .candles all over the world for Peter Gurney, and all sorts of pigs who have crossed over, including Fairy.

I'll put in a plug here for everyone on the Book of Faces to go and like Mildred's LFL page. I get such nice updates every day! The quality of books is astounding. And it is the cutest LFL I have ever seen. Very deluxe, too.
