Christmas Gift? We Still Have a Few Little Free Libraries Left


Local woodworker Larry Oleson is hard at work on the Little Free Libraries, and a few are still available to loving homes.

Interested? Email me at, and let me know why we should add your name to the list. I don’t need a thesis — just a sentence or three on your plans for the library and why it would make a great fit for your neighborhood.

I want to thank our partners for their support of this.

  • That list starts with Larry. He has been so gracious to lend his talents to this twice now. He is making these for free, and this couldn’t happen without him. Take a look at his progress in the image with this post.
  • South Milwaukee Library. As in 2015, they donated all the wood for the libraries, from their collection of retired bookshelves.
  • South Milwaukee Ace Hardware. They are donating a number of materials for the project, including the doors and windows, hinges and latches, nails, screws and more. Very cool.
  • Bliffert Lumber in Cudahy. They recently stepped up to donate posts. We also had a private donation of shingles.
