We’ve received news of two more Little Free Library locations in Edmonds:
The first, at 437 5th Ave. S., is the brainchild of employees at Averetek, an advertising and marketing firm that recently moved to town.
According to the company’s blog post describing the effort: “Our goal was to give something back to this awesome community, and in the process we took on a not-so secret mission to impress the kids that get off the school bus in front of our office with a free book. Mission accomplished.The stars aligned the day we found this old-school phone booth on Craigslist.”
The second is located at 96th Avenue West and 216th Street Southwest between Yost Park and Westgate Elementary, and was installed by Ken and Rani Kettel. A photo is not yet available, but we’ll be sure to post one if we receive it.
The idea of a Little Free Library — the brainchild of two Wisconsin men — is this: Build a box — about the size of a large birdhouse — and place it on a short post (like a mailbox). Put it in your yard where others can get to it, and fill it with books. Neighbors can take books and leave them — all on the honor system.
