Little Free Library Adventures Part Three

Welcome to the last addition to my Little Free Library Adventures! There might be a continuation of this in the future once I’ve visited other libraries, but this does conclude my adventures from my major unhaul back in May. I’ll be showing you some really neat libraries in this post as well as talking about my favorite experience from the adventure.

One of the nicest and most well kept libraries I saw was during the last part of the day. I really wish I had taken a picture of the area surrounding this library, too, because it was so sweet.

The house it was located at was smaller, but the backyard near where they put the library was incredible! It had the cutest white picket fence around it and there were so many trees. Between all of the trees the owners had strung fairy lights and there was furniture all around.

Welcome to part two of my little free library adventures! In this post I’ll be talking about the next little free libraries my husband and I visited.

Little Free Library Adventures Part One

Last month I completed a major book purge and cleared over 230 from my shelves (click here to read about it). I went back and forth on what I wanted to do with all of the books. A lot of them were ARCs so I didn’t feel comfortable trying to take them to a used book store, attempting to get rid of them on Twitter felt stressful and too costly, and I wanted to do more than just drop them off at my nearest Goodwill.

After some deliberation, I convinced my husband to drive me around so I could hop out of the car every five minutes to fill up the little free libraries around our town. The Little Free Library website has a map you are able to search that brings up all the registered libraries in your area. We spent two entire afternoons doing this and it was more fun than I thought it would be!
