We’ve showcased some of West Seattle’s wonderful, and sometimes whimsical, Little Free Libraries in recent years, and we know many more are out there. If you’ve built one or are getting ready to build one, you might be interested in a competition that the local chapter of Architects Without Borders is having – with the entry deadline less than a week away! Find out about “Libraries on the Loose” here. (Yes, you CAN enter an already-built library – we asked John Putre, who pinged us about the contest, and he said, “Submissions can be both existing and new Little Free Libraries, as long as they meet the requirements, which are pretty lenient – located in Seattle, hold at least 20 books, protected from weather.”) Entry fees benefit AWB’s work.
