The Little Free Library in Friday Harbor has been dedicated by the mayor of Friday Harbor. It was built by Louise and John Dustrude, with some help from their kids Eric and Tim and their spouses Jan and Shannon.  It was installed on Sunday, July 6th on the patio at The Barking Bird, facing the sidewalk.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Little Free Library concept , it’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.

The Little Free Library is located on the sidewalk on the Nichols Street side of the patio at The Barking Bird, just two blocks from The Tucker House.
