Local little free library

16 May

There’s a beautiful house two blocks away from ours that I always envy for it’s great yard and amazing mosaics.  A week or so ago, while walking to the local co-op grocery store with my mom, we noticed a new post in their front yard.  “I wonder what that’s going to be,” she wondered.

I’d like to introduce our new neighbor, Little Free Library!  I’ve heard of these from my classmates before but this is the first one I’ve seen up close and personal.  It’s a beauty!

This is Little Free Library number 1603!  The slogan is “reading is the KEY to imagination” and it’s decorated with mismatched keys.  So stinking cute!

We had a chance to talk owners Ella and Bruce who said that the library had already gotten quite a bit of attention.  They said that someone had even dropped off a zucchini plant for them in the little nook.  Ella said she planted it in their backyard garden.

The people at Little Free Library maintain a Google map with all of the libraries across the country.  This is the first of its kind in Corvallis.  Is there a Little Free Library in your area?  Will you make the first one?
