Little Free Library

Over the weekend, my partner in crime, Joe, and I, art-ed up a Little Free Library. I picked up this beige colored Library box on Thursday afternoon. Friday night was spent putting the first 4(?)layers of paint on. Thanks Joe!

 Pat Wyzbinski and her husband Scott Gelze, are behind this fun and wonderful project/fundraiser.

The Little Free Library social enterprise is on a mission to build 2,510 free book exchanges around the world. The movement began in Hudson, WI with a son’s tribute to his mother. Pat and Scott's son, Brandon would have turned 29 this year, so in his memory they have begun a community effort that will result in 29 little libraries being installed in Milwaukee. This project is a perfect combination of handiwork and heartwork that Brandon would have loved. Proceeds will be donated to the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network.
