Little Free Library takes the shape of a church

St. Paul's Episcopal Church in downtown Lee's Summit, Mo. is the proud owner of this Little Free Library. The church is one of the oldest in the city. The original chapel has a charming bell tower and a bright red door. Those are details I wanted to bring to the design of this Library.

The church Little Free Library is made entirely from steel. This makes for a sturdy, long-lasting structure, which can handle all kinds of weather and use.

The Library is placed along the street. Lots of nearby neighbors and church patrons can take advantage of the book sharing.

The books can be safely stored and displayed behind acrylic window. The door has a simple latch that is easy for all ages to open.

The Library is painted by hand, using tough enamel paint. It makes it easy to touch it up, if needed.
