Playing with Paint Chips

From February 15, 2016

Even though it’s a cold, snowy, freezing rain kind of day, I’m busy checking out paint samples for the new Little Free Library.

I also ordered some postcards to leave when I’m visiting other LFLs.  Between those and stamps, pencils, books, notebooks, labels, this is going to cost a bit, but I’m very excited!

In the News: Fredericksburg, VA

fredericksburgDavid Deaderick, 16, pauses for a photo in his front yard on Washington Avenue in Fredericksburg on the first day of school. He’s standing next to the family’s Little Free Library.

“Many, many people take pictures of it, stop, read some, then come back with a book and take one,” said David’s mom, Caroline, in an email.

Caroline’s husband, Bob, added shingles, stained the structure and mounted it in the corner of their yard, she said.

Caroline Deaderick said her late mother, Mary Jean Hatch, had given her hundreds of children’s books, which are now being recycled through the little library.

“It’s so fun and makes me so happy to dedicate it to my elementary school teacher mom,” Deaderick added.

Building the Greenbriar Little Free Library

From February 15, 2016

So far, Tom has filled in the cracks that appeared during shipping and has sanded everything down, getting ready for painting.

 

We’ve decided on a bright blue to match my car and a yellow roof (to make it Cushing’s colors!)

I’ve ordered stamps for the insides of the books, pencils with our motto (Take a Book ~ Return a Book).

 

Some of our books will also be part of BookCrossing. If you don’t know what that is, here’s more info: http://www.bookcrossing.com/about

 

I’ll keep you posted with more info as the construction continues, getting ready for the Grand Opening!
