Jan 14th, 2019: Itty Bitty Library

When a 110 year old Idaho Cottonwood tree was cut, the stump inspired a Coeur d’Alene librarian to build her own Little Free Library.

Little Free Library is a nonprofit that fosters a love of reading and community by encouraging book exchanges. There are more than 75,000 registered Little Free Libraries in 88 countries around the world, each with their own unique character.

No detail was spared in the creation of this “Little Tree Library,” which includes stone steps, a glass door, and warm interior and exterior lighting that provides a welcoming glow. Even in the small details, the project maintains its literary purpose. Just above the doorway, dentils in the form of miniature books recall some of the great classics like Call of the Wild and The Grapes of Wrath.

Even if you can’t make it to Coeur d’Alene, chances are you have a Little Free Library nearby. The nonprofit’s Instagram shows off some of the unique libraries that exist around the world and, via their map, it’s possible to see the library closest to your location. Want to start your own Little Free Library? The organization has plenty of tips on how to build your own and it even sells pre-fabricated kits.

So the noble Cottonwood tree, growing on this spot since Idaho was a teenager, is drawn and quartered for unspecified transgressions.
Now the stump, instead of being firewood like the rest of the tree, is humiliated as a display case for the processed entrails of it’s kin and kind.
Oh the treemanity.
