Starting on the Little Library
Here’s our Little Library update! We’ve (and by we’ve… I mean mainly my big, strapping, handsome hubby) begun building our Little Library and are excited to get it up. We have most of it together now and are waiting on Plexiglas.
We haven’t had much luck with our Pool, through PayPal (the Pool page is no longer available, PayPal ended their Pool program)… we understand that the premise is to have books be traded through the library and that having all new books isn’t necessary… BUT we do want to make sure that kids (and adults) are able to get their hands on new reading materials from time to time. Having said that… we did have a neighbor give some books for the library, which I put with the rest until we open it up!
As to building the little library… we weren’t sure exactly how big to go, but we have decided on a shelf inside to help separate the children’s books from the young adult and adult books. The body is plywood, but the challenge is to make sure that rain and snow stay out of the library. Our plan is to seal it well, obviously, but to also add an additional layer of upcycled fence boards. This will help with keeping out the elements but will also add visual interest. We plan to have the library plans available, once we get it all done, so others can join in the fun and build their own.
You can visit my Etsy store… where all proceeds will go to the little library!
Thanks for stopping by!
