A couple years ago—hard to believe I’ve been blogging that long!—I wrote a post on the Little Free Library phenomenon. (Here’s the link to that post if you’d like to read it: https://katherinewikoff.com/2012/06/29/little-free-library/)
I’ve been meaning to follow up that post with another documenting the many, varied library boxes in my neighborhood. But the tiny book houses have been proliferating like mushrooms after weeks of heavy rain. Far too many to photograph all at once—and WAY too many to include in one blog post.
So instead I’ve decided just to post photos of individual Little Free Library boxes here and there. Maybe you’ve never seen these boxes before, or maybe you have but would like some additional inspiration before taking the plunge and installing one in your own front yard. Either way, I hope you’ll enjoy the photos 🙂
This Little Free Library echoes several key architectural features of the home that it stands in front of—the gables, the brick, the chimney, etc. The entire front lower section, including the bump out, serves as the door for the box. (You can see the hinge along the left side and the knob handle just to the right of the window.)
