Demco And My Little Free Library Journey

I just took a lovely walk with Demco and I want to tell you about my little free library journey.

I’m a girl who has had library-love her whole life. Before I could read I sat in the library moving my lips pretending.

I wanted people to think I was a prolific reading genius. Once I could read I read everything I could get my hands on.

Just like you.

So when Demco a lovely, friendly library supply store called and said,

“Hey, Ann we’d like to put a Little Free Library in your front lawn and bring readers right to your doorstep.

I said, “Absolutely. Bring it.”

So they did!My library at home

Then they said, “Can we do a little story about you and the Library?”

and I said, “Are you kidding? Sure!”

So they did!

They brought a make-up artist, thank God.


Ann plus Make-up = reading glamour

They even gave me two kids and a new husband (no they didn’t these are just lovely people who like books and don’t have soup on their shirts).

So, if you look close at the first picture in this post you can see a balcony where I write on nice days.

You can see the chairs where I sit and chat with the people who stop to visit my library.

I LOVE my library and Demco could not have been sweeter during this little journey.

I’m putting my favorite writers of all kinds of genres inside my library.

Come visit my library &

Come sit by me!
