A Genius Kind of Free Library

November 25, 2015 6:36am

Little Free Libraries are very cool – they offer a way to de-clutter your bookshelves while sharing the gift of reading and connecting with your neighbors. As we reported, all around Green Lake they are sprouting like mung beans in leaf litter, of every style.

But this simply modern one really caught our eye – for more than it’s stylish good looks. The concept is touched with a spark of genius – it goes beyond books to offer puzzles and coffee mugs. There’s only one rule, according to the sign: no give-backs!


So if you’re looking for a rainy day activity that doesn’t involve Netflix, swing by 1631 N. 55th Street, grab a puzzle, and a mug if you need one, then head home and make some cocoa.

In the meantime, we’re making plans for our “Soccer Cleats, Random Lego Pieces, and Pokemon Cards” Free Library.
