Many months ago, the little free library I used to use regularly just disappeared! Well, it got blown over in a storm. It was also in the front yard of a house that was recently sold. The new owner didn’t seem to want it there. Oh well.
Today, on my drive from the gym to work, I saw that there is a new one, a block away. I told my co-worker about it and she told me where another one is. I’ll have to find that one later.
I stopped at the one I’d seen on the way to work. I grabbed two books from the giveaway bag of books that’s been in my backseat for months. I put them in the library and checked to see what was there. All children’s books. Well, I hope that changes soon.
I hope that the other one isn’t just children’s. I hope that the one on the way home from work eventually has more books for the older crowd, too.
starting a little free library
When the most convenient little free library to me blew over in a storm, it wasn’t replaced. I keep thinking of starting one, but there is not anywhere to secure it in front of the house. There’s no lawn or dirt. Just cement. I read the above linked article, but it gives me no solutions for my particular issue. Maybe it could help someone else?
This bookstore in Baltimore, (free bookstore), looks amazing! I do wonder how they stay in business, pay their rent and employees, etc, since they don’t charge for the books. The person who sent me the article called it a big free library.
You can drop off donations, too. That’s where I have trouble here. The Little Free Library that was convenient to me was destroyed in a storm, and the house where it lived was sold and it seems that the new owner doesn’t want it there. I am driving books around in my car, trying to get to another Little Free Library. There’s one near school, but they are doing construction on the road, and I can’t park in front of it yet. I’ll find a place to put these books soon, I hope.
I drove by the house where the most convenient to me little free library lives. They’ve been doing construction on the house for a few months now. I don’t know what the story is behind it, but the tarps are up still.
We have had a storm during the last week, too. It’s been windy and rainy.
Yesterday, the library was gone! The post that held it up was still there, but the library box wasn’t. I will have to check next week on its condition. I am hoping that the wind just blew it over and not that it’s permanently gone. I used it a lot.
