If you know me, you know I love to read, and I adore Children’s books. So when I came across a Little Free Library in late August via Instagram, I was smitten. I thought on it a few days and by September 4th, I was officially approved for Little Free Library 8963, a month later my official steward plate arrived. My dream for this Little Free Library was to be nestled in the trees on Granville Island.
I was able to make that dream a reality, so please come out Sunday, November 3rd from 10 am to 12 pm. At 10:30 there will be a reading of Oliver Jeffers book, The Incredible Book Eating boy. We just love Oliver Jeffers and what better book than a boy who uses books to get smarter.
I have been working at Arts Umbrella on Granville Island for the last 7 years and I think Granville Island is a most charming place to visit. The idea was very exciting, but I had no idea how to propose this to Granville Island officially. It took some time to find the right contacts, and then I began an official proposal, which I had never done before. It was a quite few weeks after submission, I was being patient and trying not to get too excited, and then I got an email. After going through my proposal and having a ground meeting for location scouting, I was officially approved. I met some wonderful people, all who were so kind and all supportive of Little Free Library and its movement for Literacy. My Father-in-law whom is a talented architect, helped with the design of the blueprints.
I am very excited to be a part of the Little Free Library and it’s Literacy movement. If you are local, please come out and join us for the Grand Opening on Sunday November 3rd from 10 am-12 pm. Hope to see you there.
