Little Free Library: SO much fun!

 

At a time of isolation and screens, setting up a neighborhood Little Free Library has been a joy.

The kids were grateful to have a project. And the parents were grateful for the kids to have a project!

We ordered a kit from the nonprofit organization called Little Free Library.

Step one: prime all the parts!

 

 

 

And figure out how to put it all together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Screwing on the roof!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Five wet paintbrushes at the same time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Screwing on the door!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And we needed a little footbridge to access our Little Free Library across a ditch. So we built that too.

 

 

 

 

 

Hammer. Hammer. Hammer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All hands on deck!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sawing the post.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had a Grand Opening!

Kids delivered paper invites to every house on our street and around the neighborhood.

We cut a ribbon and people brought books to start the library.

 

 

 

 

Waiting to put books in the library.

 

 

 

 

 

More books in the library!

We have officially registered our Little Free Library and so we are on a global map with over 100,000 registered Little Free Libraries around the world.

Of course there are many unregistered book boxes too.

It’s such a fun way to bring neighbors together.

And promote reading.

And imagination.

Without screens!

 

 

Here I am with some of the kids who helped.

Closed for Summer

I started Good Group Decisions 17 years ago and there has never been a better time to take a break than right now.

My traditional business of facilitating in-person meetings has evaporated. It’s not clear how to adapt this little company of mine. And it’s summer in Maine!

So I have decided to close down for a couple months; step away from the office and the email for awhile. You might call it a little sabbatical.

I will probably start booking clients again in the Fall. If you have a project in mind, click here to tell me about it.

Yet for now I am making no commitments. I am keeping my calendar clear for awhile. I am considering all possibilities for next steps. If you have ideas or suggestions, I would love to hear your thoughts.

My plan is to be on sabbatical until the Fall Equinox, September 22.

Thank you for understanding.
