“I saw one of these in Bainbridge Island, WA, and we were saying how we need one in Telluride. And look at that! Now we have one. It is a great way to exchange books!”

“I love this Little Free Library. It’s a great way for me to get new books while I’m waiting for my mom to pick me up at the Mercantile.”
—Morgan Rogers

‘We believe (our uncle) Hart would be very pleased with this honor as we know he was an avid reader and learner with a full range of interests. He would want everyone to have access to books freely. Thank you for accepting our contributions and for helping to carry on Hart’s spirit.”
