The Greening of the Little Free Library

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We’re celebrating by featuring green-covered books, bookmarks and a few small craft kits in our Little Free Library.

…and a pot of gold at the end of the fairy garden rainbow.

    • Thank you! The LFL brings me so much joy. It’s wonderful seeing the books ebb and flow, and fun watching users stop by. Many more have sprouted up in the neighborhood. We even have a Tardis box in nearby Campbell!


  1. What a happy post!!! :))) Fairies in the garden with rainbows and Leprechauns in the library. The photos were just lovely. Everyone is a little Irish on St. Pat’s day and I’m definitely a little Irish. We checked to make sure. 🙂 Have a lovely day.


    • I’m pretty sure I’ve got some Irish in me too, though my hair color screams Scotland. Dad was British, mom from Nova Scotia and Alys is the old Welsh spelling of Alice. It all adds up. Oh and green is my favorite color. Coincidence? Love to you, Marlene, for always showing up here with the most lovely comments.

      • The little library looks delightful in its greenery. I am sure we can all claim to have as much Irish in us as St Patrick since he wasn’t born in Ireland. Perhaps that’s why we all enjoy the celebration of St Patrick’s Day however far we are from Ireland. 🙂 We don’t need to be Irish to enjoy the spirit of Ireland, and feel the spirit of Ireland.


  2. Happy St Patricks Lepra-Alys! What a fetching book collection. BTW, thank you so so much for the Post Card. I got to my pile of mail tonight and smiled a mile. You’re so thoughtful xox Hope the luck of the Irish smile down on your fairy garden, it looks so cute. xo k


    • Thank you, Laurie! I love this little library so I squeeze in time to do special little things to renew interest and keep people engaged. The library gets a lot of foot traffic. It’s fun seeing the bookmarks gradually picked up and the books coming and going. The smallest of children are still my favorite. They have so much enthusiasm for the library.

  3. How wonderful. Was telling my friend in Maine all about the sweet package you sent to get me started and I have some ideas. I will send photos once I get under way. Happy Spring Alys.
