Woman Turns A 110-Year-Old Dead Tree Into A Free Library For Her Neighborhood

In my own neighborhood, I’m seeing more and more “free libraries” popping up. I think it’s a wonderful concept — people take and leave books in a mailbox or similar structure right on the street. The idea is that you take one of these free books, return it to the box once you’ve read it, and leave a couple of your own used books, too. The free libraries in my neighborhood are all painted boxes of some sort, but this genius woman turned a 110-year-old tree on her front lawn into a magical free library.

Sharalee Armitage Howard is a librarian, artist, and former bookbinder from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Instead of digging up and destroying a dead 110-year-old cotton tree stump in her front yard, she had the amazing idea of turning it into a free tree library. The stump was carved out from the inside, given a roof, and lit up with an adorably cozy interior. This is definitely the most charming free library I’ve ever seen — take a look for yourself!
