Stamford’s First Little Free Library On Kickstarter

Little Free LibrarySteven Wood hopes to raise $400 to install the first Little Free Library in Stamford, CT.

As is the case with other similar street libraries, this structure encourages people to “take a book, leave a book.” By constructing a Little Free Library, Wood hopes to deepen the sense of community with his neighborhood. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“The finished project will look similar to the library that is pictured above. We will need to design and build this library from scratch. The library will hold enough space for approximately 20 or 30 books of various types for children and adults.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
