Another in an occasional series of Little Free Libraries in southeast Portland
I don’t often do much up close to I-205, but I had occasion to wander around a bit on the east side of it recently. While looking for my destination, I ran across this LFL.
This is LFL #46163 at about SE Lincoln & SE 97th, near Cherry Blossom Park.
When I visited, there were several children’s books, from early readers to early chapter books, with some in English and some in Spanish. There was a good assortment of adult books as well. So much room inside! The yard is rather pretty and the neighborhood seems nice. They had a lovely “how to use this LFL” flyer on the door as well.
Happy Birthday, Ian Fleming!

I went bike riding the other day and stopped at Cartlandia for lunch. Of course, no matter how many times you go, you have to walk through the whole place and see what’s new, what’s different, what moves you today. Pancake Underground is in a different spot, but they’re still hosting a Free Library. From their website: “We took the original oven from the 1957 Jewel trailer that became our food cart, for instance, and made it into a free library for the community.”
Of course, I hadn’t thought to bring any books with me to drop off, and my bike basket was full of stuff already for the rest of the trip. I’ll have to make another lunch date out there!
I forgot I had this photo – it’s a Sunday Shelfie from a couple of weeks ago. I have no idea what happened here, or what the stuff in the main section is. Weirdly enough, the desiccant was still in the top level. That usually gets stolen within a week of me putting it out.
A Shelfie – Just because!
