I built this little library from the plan in a recent Wood Magazine issue, and we intend to share the books we have already enjoyed with other folks in our neighborhood. We have lots of joggers, walkers, and dog walkers who use the sidewalk that passes our house, so we figure the library will get plenty of use. The last shot shows the little librarian.

Very interesting idea and concept of sharing books. I wonder if this could work in my country.

Ours is getting a fair amount of traffic—unlike you, I made mine as quickly as possible. Started on a saturday and had it in the ground on Sunday afternoon.

Great looking free library! I like the overall look of it, and I really like the brass hardware you used! I’m sure it will get a lot of good use, and people will enjoy checking the books out!
