This 110-Year-Old Tree Was Transformed Into A Magical Little Library By A Woman And It Went Viral.
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.
