So this happened…

So this happened yesterday. We found it as we were leaving to do errands. Someone thinking they were being cool by throwing all the books on the ground? Someone trying to take all the books but their paper bag fell apart, and the person took off?  The weird thing was, the LFL was very deliberately emptied of books, but the DampRid was still inside.

SE PDX LFLs

Part of an occasional series – Little Free Libraries in SE Portland!

Today’s SE PDX LFL is #73051 at 4299 SE Evergreen. It’s across the street from Lewis IMG_8845.jpgElementary School – which has its own LFL!  While today’s LFL has an official Little Free Library plaque and registration number, as of today I could not find it on the LFL map. I don’t know if this library is new and the stewards haven’t put it on the map yet or if it’s been there forever and the current homeowners don’t really have anything to do with it, and it’s maintained by sheer momentum. The latter seems unlikely as this library was in great shape when I saw it. Anyone know the story on this library?

Argh – I just realized I totally forgot to look through the LFL at Lewis Elementary when I was out there! Maybe next time…

Book Donations!

Our friend Erik came by recently with a box and an IKEA bag full of books for the LFL. Thanks, Erik! I also got a few other books from a clothing swap I went to the other day. Thanks, swappers!

Classics, novels, non-fiction and a cute Christmas story, cooking, more cooking, LGBT short stories, Eragon series, and a variety of short story collections. I’ll be putting these out in the library as there’s room. If you’re super-interested in one or more, leave a comment and I can set it aside for you – if it’s still available!
