Woman Turns The Stump Of A 110-Year-Old Tree Into A Magical Little Library For The Neighborhood

Published 5 years ago

The Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire people and help build community by encouraging people to install book exchanges in their neighborhoods. Since 2009, the organization helped install over 75,000 libraries in 88 countries and exchange millions of books annually, spreading the love for books everywhere. Recently, inspired by this project, one librarian from Idaho decided to create her own unique little library.

It was created by Sharalee Armitage Howard, an artist, librarian and former bookbinder from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Her family recently had to chop down a 110-year-old cottonwood tree standing in their yard and decided to not let its trunk go to waste by installing a tiny library inside it. They carved it from the inside and decorated it with a tiny shingled roof to give it a cozy, magical look. Check it out in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
