Building Tips

https://littlefreelibrary.org/build/
A great resource from a group of Little Library organizers. Check out their bundle of videos and handful of tips and tricks!

Ideas:

  • There are also Etsy or local woodworkers who sell Little Libraries already made, if you don’t have these skills but can fundraise/apply for grant funding to cover this. Here’s an example.
  • Chat with local Guides or Scouts groups if they might want to build one a merit badge experience
  • If you know of a local woodworker that would be interested in selling these, please drop us a line!

Yarn Supply

As a part of our Upcycle Program, we are happy to stock your fibre box when supplies are available. Email us at baaadannas@gmail.com and we can coordinate a pick up/drop off.

Ideas:

  • Talk to local thrift stores to donate any excess fibre art supplies
  • Post on your local Buy Nothing facebook page
