I've been wanting a Little Free Library for a couple of years now (in fact, I asked for one for my last birthday but so far in advance that everyone--I included--forgot). I love the communal aspect of it, love that it gives me a way to share the piles of books I somehow acquire.
At any rate, I picked up a small but sturdy shelf from the curb earlier this summer and my father-in-law promptly turned it into this beauty below. We set it up outside on Friday and have already seen quite a turnover in books!
I registered for an official charter sign, which is hopefully on its way. And I picked up a little blackboard to affix to the side so people can leave notes if they want.
