I’m so excited!
Our curbside Little Free Library is this week’s LFL Library of Distinction.
The entry appears in the Little Free Library newsletter under the heading: One Library got a whimsical makeover
Here’s the link.
This is a great opportunity to bring attention to our library, and a wonderful way to celebrate and promote Donna Pierre’s stunning work. Here is how the whole thing came about.
After Donna put the finishing touches on our revamped library, I sent updated photos via the LFL website. They wrote back letting me know they would update the map within three days.
Our registered Little Free Library is searchable via the world map along with 50,000 other libraries in over 70 countries worldwide. Through the Little Free Library movement, millions of books are exchanged annually. It is a joy to be a part of the movement.
Within a few days of submitting the new photos, I received this email:

Donna attached this handsome cat to the base of the library. I reworked the white sign by smudging it with green ink. Instead of re-attaching it to the face of the library, Mike installed cup hooks below the box for the sign to hang free. I didn’t want to do anything that would distract from Donna’s design.
There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.
