Seattle's Little Free Library


I was intrigued and delighted to discover a local neighborhood 'Little Free Library' had appeared on my street... just steps from my studio! The premise of these little free libraries is that books are free to be borrowed and returned. What a charming idea! There are half a dozen of them around Seattle.

Anyhow I immediately signed off a couple of my own very local books and added them to the 37th Ave. N.E. 'Little Free Library' with great pride. They were both written and illustrated just a half block away... so it's hard to get more local than that! lol!

I have a hard time giving away my books to neighbors for some reason. I find the idea a bit embarrassing... not sure why. But to give away books to the neighborhood is easy and fun.

Very cool, John! And what a lovely Little Free Library they built, too.

So cool, John... I want one in my neighborhood!

Yes, and totally unexpected to discover on a street corner. I guess it's taking a while for the neighbors to figure out what it is... my book has been sitting there 2 days now!

The pages might start getting a bit soggy.
Oh well, rain or shine, it's a fun idea.
