Kids Library

Video - July 8, 2020

We have a lot of kids in our neighborhood and Nicole thought it would be fun to put out a bunch of books for them to enjoy. She’s been storing the books in a plastic tote and has been asking me to make a nice water-tight library for months. Unfortunately, we left the books out there during a rain storm and everything got wet. She gave the the sad puppy dog eyes so I had to choice but to prioritize this build. It’s a simple build featuring outdoor-rated plywood, a glass panel door, and pocket screw construction.

While we put our library on a bench, you can absolutely mount it on a mailbox post of some kind for a more permanent installation. While we didn’t register our library with Little Free Library, I thought I’d mention that as an option for those who want to have their library placed on their map.
