Let Your Library Loose this Summer!
Get ready to design, build and steward a Little Free Library prototype that promotes community and literacy in Seattle’s neighborhoods!
Little Free Libraries are small-scale book shelters that function as “take-a-book, leave-a-book” gathering places. They provide a location where the free exchange of books, ideas, stories, and interests contribute to a shared experience valued by neighbors and visitors. All entry fees benefit Architects Without Borders – Seattle, a local non-profit that provides ecologically sensitive and culturally appropriate design assistance to communities in need.
Libraries on the Loose Jury:
Marcellus Turner - Seattle Public Libraries City Librarian
Audrey Barbakoff - Librarian at the Bainbridge Island Branch of the Kitsap Regional Library
Lesley Bain - Principal of Framework Cultural Placemaking
Susan Jones - Principal of atelierjones
Jayne Jaderholm - Pomegranate Center Program Coordinator
Consider what design can do to foster community and literacy in our local neighborhoods and let your library loose!
