West Seattle scene: You’re invited to use ‘Nonna’s Free Library’

You could call that a pop-up library as well as a “free library,” which is how Linda described it, sharing the photo and explaining:

My dad and son, both West Seattle residents, made a free library in honor of what would have been my mom’s 71st birthday. She was a public-school teacher for many years.

Linda says you’ll find it in “the corner of my yard at 6119 SW Spokane Street” (map).

      If anyone else has one going, please send a photo – would love to publicize more. I didn’t realize this was a trend/movement until I did my every-so-often Wednesday afternoon interview on KBCS radio today and host Sonya asked about this, while explaining that. – TR
