‘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.

Here are photos of our new neighborhood attraction, courtesy Dav’ne Stahley:

“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.
