And then there were five – another Little Free Library on Queen Anne

February 15th, 2013 by Laura

Little Free Library, 10th Ave W & McGraw St

As reported on Wednesday, I found not one, but two new Little Free Libraries on Queen Anne – and it turns out there’s another one at 10th Ave W and McGraw St, bringing our neighborhood total to five. A reader tipped us to this West Queen Anne Little Free Library after seeing the post, and I headed over and snapped a shot of it. (thanks, Brian!)

To keep track of our Little Free Libraries, I’ve created a map so that you can locate the one closest to you. And, if you’re interested in your own Little Free Library, looks like we could use a couple to cover the South slope and North Queen Anne, and another on Lower Queen Anne/Uptown would be great… but there’s always room for more in other areas too!

Check out the site for details on setting up your own Little Free Library – registration costs $34.95 and here’s what the organization provides in its Steward’s Kit:

  • A Getting Started packet full of tips and outreach tools
  • Little Free Library official brochure
  • One bumper sticker
  • One page each of Recommended Reads bookplates and book binder labels you can copy or print
  • Exclusive access to templates and artwork that you can download and customize – book binder labels, bookmarks, fliers, stickers and bookplates
  • Eligibility for free new books donated by publishers for the cost of shipping and handling only when books are available
  • Special prices on other Little Free Library-related products as they become available
  • Many other free items, resources, connections and opportunities to help you have fun with your Little Library and keep people engaged

In addition to the Steward’s Kit, you also get an official charter sign, number, and a spot on the Little Free Library world map. Plus, they have building tips and designs too. If you decide to host your own Little Free Library, or if you see one not listed on our map, let us know.
