Little Free Library Competition: St. Louis Designweek & SPACE

by Debbie Monterrey

Little Free Libraries are popping up all over the community and the country. Little boxes on fence posts, in front of businesses, on street corners. The idea is to take a book to read and love and, hopefully, leave one for someone else.

In St. Louis, some of the Free Little Libraries will be used as community outreach tools by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

SPACE Architecture + Design is hosting a Little Free Library competition as part of St. Louis DesignWeek 2016 and is inviting any and all to build one! Get creative!

Entries will be unveiled at a celebration on October 6th and judges (including me) will select Best in Show, People’s Choice and Spirit of St. Louis winners.

But all the libraries are winners because they’ll be installed around St. Louis City by Gateway Greening and used/maintained by the St. Louis Police Department.
