We generally cut down many age-old trees which come across the constructions like roads, houses, etc. But we never think of recreating these old trees into beautiful minimal free libraries like Sharalee Armitage Howard. Sharalee works at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, Idaho and other than this she is additionally a craftsman and a previous bookbinder.
A 110-year-old cottonwood tree is shedding its branches, and the Sharalee Armitage Howards was anxious about someone getting hurt. So instead of destroying it, she thought to create the stump of the tree into a beautiful little magical library. This great idea turned this huge tree into a free small library with a fairytale look and has become one of the prettiest libraries we’ve ever seen.
This small library was arranged in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, which is known for water sports.
Beautiful tiny library
The trunk was scooped out from inside to accommodate few bookshelves, the top of the stump was cut to give it an inclined rooftop, besides these the minimal interiors and exterior lightings have turned this tree into a magical little library for the neighborhood.
This is a non-profit organization which helps in neighborhood book exchanges around the world. These little free libraries are everywhere throughout the world, and they have spread n 88 countries with more than 75,000 libraries.
People around the globe adored this creative idea.
As soon as Sharalee shared her idea and photos in social media, there’s a massive love for her creativity, some wanted to replicate this idea, and some authors wanted to donate books. Thanks to the internet and social media.
She’s so generous and thanked everyone for their love and feedback
