There are a bunch of Little Free Libraries in Austin. Here’s some of the ones I found on a recent trip.
I’m guessing the pretty floral tiles on the sides are initials of the library’s owners, which is a nice touch. This library has a pretty simple construction, but I like the bright paint colors–a sunny orange and sky blue.
I almost missed this one, tucked away in a little loop of front yards behind an unlocked gate. It’s surrounded by a barely contained grapevine, an exuberant frame for the simple paint scheme–which matches the house behind it. The owners went for a double book stack, which reminds me of my overcrowded shelves.
These two are the last ones from my trip, though there’s plenty more in the city, and I’m sure I’ll be in Austin again, and visit more Little Free Libraries–and take plenty more pictures.
Do you have an LFLs in your neighborhood?
