I came home from work and found my Little Free Library fairly well stuffed!
Then I noticed a garbage bag on the sidewalk right in front of the library. This could mean anything – someone dropped their garbage here on purpose, someone lost a bag off a wagon or little shopping cart, someone stole a bunch of stuff without knowing what it all was and this bag is the stuff they decided they didn’t want. Turned out to be more books! A couple of the books are HUGE activity books, hence not being able to put them in the Library (even if there’d been more room). I love that a couple of them aren’t English – Spanish and Vietnamese kid books! Yay books! Thank you, anonymous donor!
Featured in the Little Free Library this week – Hanukkah books!
I’m sorry they’re late – it’s already the fourth night of Hanukkah, and I’m only just getting the books out to the LFL. My only excuse is that I’ve been sick for the last *3 weeks* with a wicked respiratory infection that now includes a sinus infection. 😣
In any case, here we are!
My sweetie and I just went on a 9-day vacation. I made sure to fill up the library as best I could before we left – I packed it right before getting the ride to the airport.
I came home to find it nearly empty. Yay, people finding books to read!
Even better, I came home to find stacks of books on the dining table. Turns out, someone left us a bunch of books piled at the end of our driveway, plus my MiL cleaned off an entire shelf just for our Little Free Library.
I’ll set these out just as soon as I’ve processed them.
Thanks, anonymous book donor!
I just got a shipment of books from First Book. They’d had a massive sale I couldn’t resist.
Most of the books I got can be roughly sorted this way:
Classics Diversity Teens/Adults
I’ll likely be putting these out in September – watch this blog for them!
We went to the book sale at Title Wave, Multnomah County Library system’s dedicated bookstore. We came home with two large grocery totes *filled to the top*. It all came to under $20 total almost 50 books. While we’ll read some of them ourselves, everything will go to our Little Free Library over the next couple of months. I was bummed I couldn’t find more Vietnamese kid books or anything in Arabic or Somali. Maybe next time. We brought home:
-Vietnamese adult & kid books
-Chinese kid books
-Chinese adult books
-Spanish kid books
-Spanish teen books
-English kid books
-English non-fiction and poetry
-Plus Tucker and Jax checking out the haul. They approve – two paws up!
Just received a donation of cookbooks this afternoon! Thanks to a brief interaction on Facebook, Rick just brought by a stack of cookbooks (and one gardening book) for the Little Free Library this afternoon. Thanks, Rick!
Watch for these in the Little Free Library over the next week!
