How to Build a Little Free Library – Information and Ideas.
Have you ever heard of Little Free Libraries? It’s an awesome way to share the love of learning and books. I really wanted to build one in front of the 1905 cottage. I was hoping to make one that was a miniature of the cottage and I thought since the cottage sat directly in front of an elementary school, it would be the perfect place for a Little Free Library.
The other day as I was walking our puppy, I stumbled across a Little Free Library at a park right by my house and it reminded me of how much I love this idea. Library owners can create their own library box, usually about the size of a doll house, or purchase one from the website. For a fee, libraries may be registered and assigned a number at Little Free Library. You can find out all about this idea on their website. It tells you how to find Little Free Libraries in your area, plus plans if you want to build your own, you can even buy pre-made Little Free Libraries there. If you decide to build your own Little Free Library, you can register it and put it on the world map.
The next time the kids and I go on a trip I think it would be fun to visit Little Free Libraries on our trip and leave a book too.
I love the creativity people have used in making their Little Free Libraries. Some of them look like birdhouses, some look like miniature houses, and some are made our of ingenious things like old phone booths and even little mini refrigerators. It’s so fun to see all of the ideas.
Usually there are at least two shelves, one for children’s books and another one for adult books.
