Many people just love to read books. It’s their passion, and it makes life worth living. And the Little Free Library, a nonprofit organization, is working hard to make sure as many people as possible have books to read and enjoy.
There are now more than 75,000 Little Free Libraries in 88 countries. Now THAT’S a LOT of libraries! And one of the coolest little libraries there is was created by a family in Couer d’Alene, Idaho. The library was actually carved out of the inside a big tree.
The tree is a 110-year-old cottonwood that would have otherwise been dug up and destroyed. But the little library has given it new life, and is a true joy to so many. The stump of it was cutout from the inside and a roof put on top of it, and several stone steps lead up to it. Shelves were installed with special lighting and a cool-looking door was put on. And on those shelves are great adventures for those who stop by the Little Free Library Tree.
So whether or not you can make it out to the book tree, find yourself a good book today and get lost in it for awhile.
The Little Free (Tree) Library
This is an awesome project. A Coeur d'Alene artist found a unique way to repurpose an old and decaying tree in her front yard. She's turned the tree's stump into a Little Free Library. It's a free book exchange designed to encourage reading. A Facebook post from the woman has since been shared close to 30,000 times! https://www.krem.com/mobile/article/news/local/kootenai-county/artist-turns-100-year-old-tree-in-coeur-dalene-into-little-library/293-3fa730c4-2ccf-4771-bed9-0176fb334083Posted by Taylor Viydo on Tuesday, 18 December 2018
