Librarian Transforms 110-Year-Old Tree Into Jaw-Dropping Little Free Library – Design You Trust

Librarian Transforms 110-Year-Old Tree Into Jaw-Dropping Little Free Library

Talk about a “giving tree”! When a 110-year-old cottonwood tree in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, needed to be removed, Sharalee Armitage Howard—a librarian, artist, and former bookbinder—transformed it into an amazing Little Free Library. Now, instead of providing shade, the tree will share books.

The not-so-little Library, which stands in Sharalee’s front yard, features inviting stone steps, a sloped roof, a large green door, and warm interior and exterior lights. The details of the Library are exquisite, with miniature wooden books—like Call of the Wild and Nancy Drew—trimming the entrance.
