Nancy Smith. Old Town, ME. My mother passed away five years ago and we had been thinking about how we could best honor her memory. She was an avid reader. We started the library with books that we had recently read and enjoyed. It has been open just over a week and seems to have developed a dedicated following here at the lake. We have witnessed both "summer people" and year round residents taking advantage of the Little Free Library.
We love to read books in our family, but I also love to pass them along when we are finished! We decided to build and decorate our very own little free library! On the blog, I'm sharing the easy building plans and the small decor touches we made to make this sweet little library! #nestingwithgrace #littlelibrary #buildingplans #booklovers
GEORGIA, Canton #3160 When Thomas and Barbara Dorn learned about the LFL movement, it was an instant decision to build their own. Thomas designed and crafted the library painting the interior and exterior for Barbara's decorative designs. She found inspiration from her years of quilting as well as in the extensive gardens of their home which they both work in. Installed in their front yard the LFL is not only a neighborhood book resource but a vibrant aesthetic focal point.
"We decided to build a library that reflected our small community. A chicken coop theme fit us perfectly! We took an old bookcase, put on Plexiglass front doors, mounted it on a sturdy box, added a rusty tin metal roof and it became our library. Lighting and fans make it comfortable and convenient for all seasons." Margaret Atkins, Winchester, TX
