If you are in need of books or in need of giving away books, please come check out the Wingnut Little Free Library at 2005 Barton Avenue.

Little Library in construction above. We made it out of scrap wood kicking around the house. Upcycle! If you want help building one for your neighborhood let us know.

Take a book and bring a different book back later!
No checking out! No need to return!

Just a community resource to facilitate getting books some folks no longer want to folks who want to read them.

If you have more books to give away than will fit in our little library, we have a spot inside the house to store back up.

Come down and check it out and get books! Reading rules and so does sharing!
