Visiting Seattle LFLs

I stayed in Seattle for the weekend recently. I didn’t get to see many Little Free Libraries – I was too busy going to Archie McPhee’s Rubber Chicken Museum and picking up little boxes of art from the sole Art-O-Mat host in the entirety of the state of Washington – but I did get to see one. Maybe two. I’m unclear.

Between errands and visiting, I didn’t really have any time until the very end of my trip. With an hour to kill before boarding my train, I used the Little Library Locator app to see what was nearby. I found one, LFL #11041, inside an Irish-style pub, O’Donnell’s.

The hostess told me they try to keep the library stocked with books on Irish history and travel and such. I highly suspect that they do not lend out anything but the books. play.jpg

I’m not as sure about the other, LFL #17872. Either it’s part of this Seattle Parks “Play” project, or it no longer exists. The project brings a ton of toys and a couple of racks of books to city parks to share with anyone who wants. All of the books I saw had stickers marking them as from this city initiative, so I’m not sure if they’re for giving away or if you have to read them on the premises. I left a couple of children’s books on the rack anyway, just because.

Hoping to see some more Little Free Libraries next trip!
