‘Little Free Library’ Pops Up in White Center
A new “Little Free Library” has popped up in White Center – at 11052 19th Ave SW (map below) – and residents are invited to participate by borrowing a book or dropping one off.
If you’re not yet familiar with them, “Little Free Libraries” are community-built sheds where anyone can borrow or drop off books for free.

“Deb and Deb designed and built our Library,” Dav’ne told us. “We welcome anyone who wants to pick up a book or drop off a book to do so … check out the website!”
According to the www.littlefreelibrary.org website, the goals of this project – which is nationwide – are:
- To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
- To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity, and wisdom across generations.
- To build more than 2,510 libraries around the world – more than Andrew Carnegie–and then more.
