Lending Library

My daughter in law said she would love to have a Lending Library for the front of her home. So for Christmas of 2016 I proceeded to design and build her one. Trying to be creative while also trying to repurpose/recycle materials that would otherwise go to a landfill, I thought it would be unique to use these recycled materials to house the recycled reading books.

I had a lot of challenges to overcome including; weather abilities, both inside and out; ability to withstand heavy winds; strong enough to withstand those tiny (and not so tiny) hands opening and closing the door, and allowing people to see into the Library from the front and sides.

I am happy to report the Library has stayed in perfect condition and DRY for the books it houses for well over a year. And my daughter in law, grandchildren and neighbors love it!
