our little library


we live in a 3 condo, stucco building with these colored doors with big address numbers on them. (And for those of you who are wondering... No I did not put the numbers on the doors or pick the font. Yes those doors were in part what make me think I should live here.)

And we wanted a Little Free Library for our front yard. John thought it should look like our condo building. He designed and built it, Jamie consulted, Dave donated most of the materials, my brother Bill cut the vinyl numbers and I embellished it. We unveiled it at a neighborhood get together. We are delighted with the results and that our street has one.

For those of you who do not know about the Little Free Library you can read about them at www.littlefreelibrary.org/. By now there are probably about 3,000 of these. The idea is to bring a book and take a book.

Our Library is the Paul Jacobi Memorial Library. Thanks to Paul our small neighborhood street gathers together 3-4 times a year to enjoy each others company and keep up with the comings and goings of our neighbors. We were invited to our first get together even before we closed on our condo. We live in a great place and this Little Free Library is a very nice addition.

BIG thanks to John who got the idea and executed it so well!
