Close-up of completed lending library project

Share your love of printed books by building a repository that the whole neighborhood can enjoy.

Libraries are cool — both big and small! The little lending library trend in neighborhoods, and the access they provide to free books, has continued to grow over the years. I've had several opportunities to design and build different lending libraries.

This little library project features an inverted "book" serving as its roof and the design is relatively simple to build without compromising quality. It's a project you should be able to build in a long weekend and then put up in your neighborhood the very next week!
