This Week at the Little Free Library



I took a picture of the area outside of the Little Free Library just so you can see how much snow we’ve had this winter. Despite that, the Library is doing well, as evidenced by all the footprints in front of it. (There’s a picture I should have taken.)

Also, note to self: If you are taking a picture of something that has reflecting glass on it, don’t park right in front of it. Dope.

Many of the Little Free Libraries around town are hard to get to because of all the snow, but since mine was anchored close to the shoveled sidewalk, access is pretty easy. People come and go, leaving stuff and taking stuff. Funny how certain books leave for a while but come back and get taken again. Every day is different.

My dear friend Rick sent a box of books at Christmas time, so those will be going in soon. My other dear friend (they’re all dear, aren’t they? We’re so lucky to have them!) April sent me home with several books to add to the Library, too.


So this week at the Gilliat Street Little Free Library, you will find something good for everyone:

• My Name is Aram, by William Saroyan

• Slaughterhouse Five, by Kurt Vonnegut

• The Lost World, by Michael Crichton

• The Body Farm, by Patricia Cornwell

• I Know This Much is True, by Wally Lamb

• Heaven Is For Real, by some little kid

• Moon over Madeleine Island, by Jay Gilbertson

• A Balcony in the Forest, by Julien Gracq

• Sizzle, by Jane Anne Krentz

For the younger crowd:

• Magic Window Book of Games & Puzzles

• Mister and Me, by Kimberly Willis Holt

• When I Grow Up

• The Wurst Seller

• Finding Nemo (VHS)

There’s lots more, including some medical journals and oddball cookbooks. Come and see!

    Rick, you know the way! The guest room is always open. You need to get out of that snowy city, anyway.

  3. Cathy says:

    Happy to see the Little Free Library is thriving, despite the snow!

  4. Chris says:

    This weekend I hope to start painting my LFL. My brothers Rob and Dave will hopefully help to get it planted in April. With the books I have and the books you gave me, I will be ready to be open for business!

  5. Patt says:

    Chris, I’m eager to see it. Maybe in the spring I can bring my great-nieces over to check out the books. Just looked into mine yesterday…lots of new books in there. I always love to see what’s coming & going!

    Good to see folks up here are still venturing outside to explore something other than the ice caves in Cornucopia. Of course, when it’s so damn cold what’s a better past-time than hunkering down with a good read?
