Woman Carves Magical ‘Little Free Library' Out Of 110-Year-Old Tree
This is possibly the most inviting ‘Little Free Library' of all time
There's been a number of Free Little Libraries showing up around towns and communities all over the world the past few years - but this one you really have to see to fully appreciate.
Obviously for any library, it's not what's on the outside that matters most. But this particular book-borrowing haven looks like something out of a magical fairytale land.

Creator Sharalee Armitage Howard, a librarian and artist from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho turned a dying 110-year-old cottonwood tree outside her home into the most perfect mini library. “Someone willing to take the time to give new life to a stump would never cut down a healthy tree to do it,” Howard told Bored Panda. “It was dropping HUGE branches for years onto the sidewalk and street. We were really worried about someone getting hurt. One finally hit our son's car.”
And so, her Free Little Library was born.
