‘Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds’...a delightful and instructional look at making your own Little Free Library.

I’m speechless at the amount of detail in the building plans for each project, and, knowing a small amount about woodworking myself, feel these are all very doable – as long as you have the right equipment.

Also, as someone obsessed with having her own LFL, I am love looking at images of other people’s tiny libraries...and this book does not disappoint. This section was definitel

I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

This is a very detailed book for those who want to build their own Little Free Library. Color photos are provided throughout, along with detailed materials and tools lists and step-by-step directions with pictures. There are also lots of pictures of LFLs around the world. I would have loved some examples of more repurposed designs and quirkier ones (they all had a similar look) but these are really well planned out. After reading through it, I'm not sure I have the right tools or knowledge to re ...more

FTC disclosure: I would like to thank Cool Springs Press for providing me with an advance reader copy via access to the galley for free through the NetGalley program.

This is an excellent book, perfect for a beginner or advanced craftsman. I'd recommend it to anyone and it would make a great gift and community/school/family project.

I was intrigued by this book after having seen and used a Little Free Library and wondered how to make one. It's an amazing concept. This book contains clear, easy to

Good read, nice photos of Little Free Libraries, and 12 full patterns and instructions to make different types! As someone planning to build my own Little Free Library this summer, it was exactly what I had hoped for, and worth the buy for that.

I love the flower box tiny shed, it would be perfect for a seed exchange combination garden book library.

Reader gets twelve options of little libraries to make - so great for those who like building things. One does get images of other little libraries along with some other information. Good tips and visuals from start (planning) to finish (putting it up). Does note that there are other options one can do with these structures (tool exchange or pet items).

This is a nice book for those who are a bit curious abot Free Little Libraries. It has great tutorials on DIY libraries and lots of great photos of finished libraries.

What a fabulous idea, a community place to share your finished books or anything else one has to share. And what wonderful little structures to make it so much more fun. Every country, state or town will have laws that allow or disallow this type of sharing, but it is certainly worthwhile to see if it can be done. Regardless the structures are super cute and useful for all sorts of things and there is good instructions on material, tool and extensive information on how to build one, or adapt and ...more

Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is a great find! I am a Girl Scout leader and we are always looking for projects to better our community and this fits right in. This book Has detailed instructions for dozen different small libraries, and an assortment of photographs showing potential design ideas. I can’t wait to share it with my Troop and make some amazing little libraries.
Thank you NetGalley for this eARC!

I received an advanced digital copy of this book from Netgalley.com and the publisher. Thanks to both for the opportunity to read and review.

Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds is a wonderful how to book to make your own for your community. They have put together a volume that is beautifully photographed with clear instructions on how to build one of your own.

Excellent book. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars.

I love Little Free Libraries! Ages ago, I was active on BookCrossing.com which encouraged leaving books in "the wild" (random places) to be found by happenstance and hopefully enjoyed and released again to be enjoyed by others. It was a lot of fun seeing where books went, but these days, I stick with leaving books in one of several Little Free Libraries in my neighborhood I pass daily while out walking my dogs. I love that these sites give readers a perfect way to share the books where they'll b ...more
