Wednesday Woodworking – Last of the Little Libraries

To end the year here are a few pictures of the little libraries we made at church. This is the completed one that the team installed in front of our chapel. My part of the project was to build the box. Installing the libraries was done by a different team while I moved on to write the advent poems.

In January, I’ll be starting on some shop cleanup and reorganization projects.

    Great info but when I seen the roof I was hoping it was a dog house
    But would need a big one as I always seem to end up in one
    Thanks for sharing


  2. You need to change the ‘like’ to a ‘love’ button for this post. 🙂


  3. So cute. And a great idea. I hope the books don’t just wander off and never return.

    Such a wonderful idea, can anyone take the books , how does it work ? the little library is so attractive. regards and a Happy New Year.


  7. We have these little libraries scattered throughout our county. You are enabling a gift with those little libraries. Whether you know it or not, you are giving the gift of knowledge. Marvelous! This is exactly why I follow you, you remind me that there are still good people out there! 🙂


  8. Good grief those are amazing. Your school/library is so lucky.

    I’m envious of the lovely community you must live in. Such boxes probably wouldn’t last overnight around here. A shame too, because they must be such a treasure (and wonderful lesson) for the kids.
