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.

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!
