Over the weekend, I stumbled upon an article in the local newspaper, which has led to a little adventure today. Today being a wet and grey and cold day, today being my first week day off since Christmas. So as you can probably imagine, today is a treasured day and one just right for a wee adventure.
So, after diligently completing the school run, I drove just ten little minutes into the very wet countryside
into a sweet little village, which I have only visited a couple of times before, for the annual scarecrow festival held in September, when it would seem the whole world turns up. Today, it seemed as if I was the only one here.
My adventure was not a wild one, but it made me feel hopeful of humanity and I did find the tiny, little library
nestled on the corner of an ordinary street…
from a little way off you would hardly guess what an alternative purpose was hidden inside,
but once inside there were treasures to behold…
and I had come prepared…a gift for the library…an old book no longer required.
So I nestled it on the shelf, wandering who would choose my book. I also left a little yarniness…
some cute paper clip bookmarks , and I wandered some more about who would choose these…
and so with happiness in my heart, I drove the ten minutes home, feeling cold and wet…but not a bit grey

That is so fun and generous and thoughtful of you.
Such a cute little library! It’s a wonderful idea as well to leave your beautiful bookmarks. I’m sure they will be greatly appreciated there 🙂
Awesome. I do love a library, and this one will be one of my very favourites if I lived there. You did such a great thing with the little bookmarks, and I am sure some readings are going to be very delighted.
Turning an old phone booth into a little library is a most wonderful idea! I wish we had one of those around here. It was so sweet of you to leave some of your cute bookmarks. Some special people will have a sweet way to save their place 🙂
That’s great – both the yarny gifts and the books 🙂
