Saturday Snapshot

November 16, 2013

Over a year ago, I purchased a Little Free Library to place in the park in our neighborhood.  Carl was to put it up for me but since the store opened, he just hasn’t had time.  I finally thought to approach a kind neighbor and he agreed to install it last weekend.  He did a wonderful job and the library looks terrific! (On the other side of those bushes is this statue of a girl reading.)  I can’t wait for everyone to start using the library!

    I love this so much.

    Wow, that’s fantastic! I want to do one as well!

  4. November 16, 2013 7:47 am

    I love this too! And want to do this. Don’t you just want to hide and watch people use it?

    What a wonderful idea and how lovely that you chose to participate. It looks beautiful!

    Awesome! Our city council just started talking about these over the last couple of months. I would love to have one but we live on a state highway.

    I love it! There is a house about two blocks from me that has one in their front yard. I downloaded the plans to build one but I have to wait for help with the sawing and nailing. I can handle the painting.

    What a wonderful thing to do. I love it, Kathy! And the setting couldn’t be more perfect.

    That’s such a great idea! And I’m totally in love with the statue of the girl reading – want one for my garden.

  13. November 16, 2013 10:26 am

    How cute is that!

  14. November 16, 2013 10:35 am

    That is so cool. I just learned about these libraries recently, and I think it’s such a great idea. Nice going, Kathy.

    Wonderful! I read about these a while back. Would love to watch people’s reactions when they see it!

  16. November 16, 2013 10:48 am

    I love the fall foliage, but then you go and add a free library stand too? Awesome!!

  17. November 16, 2013 11:22 am

    Oooooh, I love those Little libraries. Would love to have one. I live in an apartment. Not sure of the rules. Plus, the cost is pretty big for me. They are so cute. What a nice neighbor too.,,Love the trees. I have photos for this week. Don’t know where the meme begins.

    So cool that it’s near the statue of the girl reading. It will be fun to see what happens with this little free library.

  19. November 16, 2013 2:30 pm

    That looks so nice! I wish there was a little library in my area.

  20. November 16, 2013 2:36 pm

    Looks great and a great idea.

  21. November 16, 2013 3:09 pm

    I would love to put one of these libraries somewhere!

    Oh it’s soooo pretty. I love love love love love it. I think when Baby Whimsy is older, we will do a mini kids library in our yard maybe. 🙂

  23. November 16, 2013 4:41 pm

    How nice is that! I wish there was one of those by me.

  24. November 16, 2013 5:10 pm

    Oh my gosh, I love those little libraries. We are in Arizona for the winter now but when we get back to Oregon I am going to put one up in our neighborhood! Thank you for sharing.

    How does the library function? What a cute idea?

  26. November 16, 2013 5:59 pm

    I love it Kathy – looks great there too.

  27. November 16, 2013 6:08 pm

  28. November 16, 2013 6:20 pm

    What a fabulous idea.
    I’ve never heard of this before.

    Aw, how cute! I love little libraries. I’ve never seen one in person though.

    I LOVE this idea! It reminds me of the postbox that Laurie and Meg install between their homes in ‘Little Women’ … I want my husband to build me one to install somewhere in our little community!

  32. November 16, 2013 9:20 pm

    What a cool thing! Love it!

  33. November 16, 2013 10:00 pm

    what a great idea.

  34. November 16, 2013 11:38 pm

    Too cool! Now I want to get one and put it somewhere nearby.

  35. November 17, 2013 12:28 am

    I wonder how that would work in my neighborhood. If it wasn’t water tight, the winter snow would surely ruin the books. I love the idea though. I want to share my books and haven’t found a really good way to do that. Thanks for the idea.

  36. November 17, 2013 4:51 am

    Looks nice 🙂

  37. November 17, 2013 6:12 am

    What a wonderful thing to do for your community. I hope it’s successful. I remembered your lovely girl reading statue.

  38. November 17, 2013 6:50 am

    What an awesome thing to do!!!

  39. November 17, 2013 7:36 am

    We have on in the park near our house. I love seeing what’s inside when I go by. Congrats on getting yours up and running 🙂

    Beautiful photos! It looks like you found the perfect place for the tiny library!

  41. November 17, 2013 12:17 pm

    I love the idea of the little library, and the photo is glorious!

  42. November 17, 2013 3:49 pm

    Cool! That’s exactly the same design that some caring neighbors put in near my house. I love the idea of Little Free Libraries.

  43. November 17, 2013 11:38 pm

    Nice – good for you!

  44. November 18, 2013 6:59 am

    What a wonderful idea!! I love it!

  45. November 18, 2013 7:45 am

    Kudos to you! I love your little free library! It looks fantastic and I’m sure it will gets tons of use 🙂

  46. November 18, 2013 8:21 pm

    Great idea! 🙂

    This is the first time I’m hearing about this! This is such a cool idea! I hope you plan to post some updates on how people use this.

  48. November 20, 2013 12:44 pm

    So pretty! Is the whole thing your responsibility? The location, ordering and keeping it stocked? I’d love to hear your experience with it because I think it might be a great activity to do with Gage.

  49. November 25, 2013 10:22 am

    What a fun idea!
