It was with great joy that we opened our Little Free Library no. 11074 at our annual St. Patrick’s Day party this year. The opening ceremony included a dedication to “all those who read and to Books!” by Carter Black (age 12). All party guests participated by bringing a book to add to the inaugural collection. The library is located on the corner of 32nd Ave. W. and W. Bertona in Magnolia and all are welcome to take and leave books to share. We are hoping to keep a good quantity of children’s books as well as a fun and eclectic mix for the many passersby in the neighborhood. Currently the Library’s collection one can find a collection of The Puppy Place tales, a coffee-table book on the Dalai Lama and all 150 Shades of Grey. The Library was built by Todd Hyatt as a gift, to Melissa Hyatt, the curator, this past Christmas. We are registered in the International Registry of Little Free Libraries and welcome all fans of a book in hand to participate in the constant renewal of our collection. Go Books!
With the loss of one LFL this past year, and if my math is correct, that brings Magnolia’s grand total of Little Free Libraries up to 3. It is also possible that there are some new ones that aren’t yet listed on the official Little Free Library website. Let us know if we have missed one!
