Alex's Little Free Library

Little Free Libraries tend to be as creative as some mailboxes. David Aber photographed this one on January 8, 2020:
We thought that a statue of Alex the dog was next to the bench. But Andrea corrected us. As her comment (below) says: “Alex's Little Free Library is name after the steward 1st daughter Alexandra and not a dog. Someone left a toy cat next to the bench. Feel free to stop by, bring a book and take a book.”

LOCATION: Northeast of 5th & Alvernon

HOURS: Sunrise to sunset (It's directly in front of a home, so please be extra-respectful and quiet… maybe wait until 9 AM or so)

PARKING: Street parking

2419 North Orchard Avenue: Spacey Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries tend to be creative places built by creative people. But this one (actually two), which David Aber found on August 28, 2021, tops all of the ones I've seen:
If you're planning to stay a while, note that the bench is on the west side of Orchard, so it'll be shaded somewhat during the afternoon.

Here's a photo looking south along Orchard Avenue on February 1st:
Location: Just northeast of the corner of Grant & Columbus

Hours: Sunrise to sunset

Parking: Street parking
