I walked past a Little Free Library on the boundary of the Brentwood-Darlington and Woodstock Neighborhoods in Southeast Portland today, #45498. It’s a very trusting library, tucked into a tall hedge on the corner of SE 45th & SE Ogden. I’ve been by this LFL before. I don’t pass by it often enough to know how well it’s patronized, but I’ve seen all sorts of books, I’ve seen it full and nearly empty, and it’s always in good shape – the stewards are clearly taking care of it. Sometimes I’ve seen bookmarks. Today, there were also an Amnesty International and a Pink Ribbon/Cancer Awareness vinyl clings. I wonder how much traffic it gets, being rather near some good neighborhood shopping and an elementary school.
I didn’t see any books I wanted to take home today (trying to work through my To Be Read pile!). I’ll try to remember to take a few books their way next time I’m in the area.
