Jenny Heins. Seattle, WA. This little library was supposed to be a prototype, but I had such fun embellishing that it ended up being my library. We started by stocking it with books from Sustainable Ballard's lending library. Next up: excess from my private collection. Sustainable Ballard will be publishing a map of Ballard libraries and we are offering subsidies to help people register their libraries.

Matt Renwick. Wisconsin Rapids, WI. We started a raised bed garden at Howe Elementary in the Spring of 2010. Families from our school are able to sponsor a bed and grow whatever they would like each spring. Currently we have 14 raised beds. A pergola with a picnic table and the Little Free Library were added in the Spring of 2012. We dedicated it to our retiring Principal Scott Kellogg for his commitment to literacy for the students at Howe Elementary.
