This Little Free Library is built in order to inspire people and help them to build community by installing book exchanges in their neighborhoods. In 2009, this non-profit organization was founded, and since helped establish over 75,000 libraries in 88 countries. People can exchange millions of books annually. A librarian from Idaho created her incredible unique library inspired by this project.

Sharalee Armitage Howard is an artist and former bookbinder from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. There was a 110-year-old cottonwood tree standing in their yard, and recently, they had to chop it down. But they left the trunk and transformed it into a tiny library. They carved the tree and put it on a shingled roof. Here are the pictures of the magnificent library.

A Coeur d’Alene artist made this with an old and decaying tree in her front yard. She’s turned the tree’s stump into a Little Free Library. You can exchange books to encourage reading. A Facebook post from the woman has since been shared near to 30,000 times.
