Walking in my neighborhood this afternoon, I spotted a Little Free Library that I hadn’t noticed before. In front of Early Masters, an art and art history school for children, the library is nicely constructed from what looks like actual siding and roofing materials. It’s a duplex, and the tiny windows have glass panes. The door has a picture of Picasso on it. The Little Free Library sits on a platform through which two large trees are growing.
Art, books, trees: It’s a rich visual metaphor for personal expression and growth for the kids enrolled in the school.
