Last Christmas, Tamara gave me one of the sweetest gifts I’ve ever received:
YES! A little free library. Dreams do come true!
For those who don’t know, a little free library is a little mailbox-type construction that’s chock full of books that are free for the taking. You can take any book you like, and you can leave books, too. There are little free libraries all around the country, and I have always felt like a little jolt of delight whenever I’ve spotted one. (Click here for a website with more info!)
Our farm is located right on the NCR Trail, so, while we live amongst hundreds of trees and lots of undeveloped land, we also have passersby coming through our property every day. So I decided it would be fun to have a little free library here at the farm, for visitors or neighbors on the trail to utilize. Tamara built it for me and presented it to me on Christmas morning; we just put it up a few weeks ago.
I wasn’t sure how successful my library would be. So I took a picture of it, filled with the books I’d placed carefully inside, so I’d be able to tell if it was being used.
IT IS! Several of the original books are gone and there are new ones there, too!
SUCCESS! So fun. Hopefully there will be lots of library updates to come!
