How is your Little Free Library coming along?

“Little Free Libraries” are free-standing “take a book, leave a book” boxes all over the country where folks can discover new authors and share their favorite titles with their community. And the downtown Klamath County Library is hosting a contest to build them!

In honor of our 2017 Summer Reading Program theme, “Build a Better WorldTM,” we’re asking Klamath County residents to construct a Little Free Library of their own. The top two mini-libraries will win gift cards to The Home Depot.

Want to join in the fun? Pick up an information sheet at the downtown library’s Reference desk! All completed libraries must be delivered to the downtown library during open hours on Sunday, August 6th or on Monday, August 7th. The general public will vote on the finished libraries from Tuesday, August 8th through Monday, August 14th. You can vote once a day for your favorites – vote as many times as you like! Winners will be notified on Tuesday, August 15th.

If you don’t want to take your Little Free Library home with you when the contest is over, let us know when you submit your entry that you’d like us to put it up for “adoption.” Patrons interested in adopting a mini-library can claim them during the judging period in August.

The fine print: the mini-libraries must be no smaller than 20 inches wide by 15 inches deep by 18 inches high. There is no maximum size, but the library must fit through the downtown library’s doors. Use of recycled materials is encouraged.
