Treehouse Little Free Library…

There was much speculation around town as to what Jeff and Nancy Madison’s cottonwood stump was going to be. Some said a fairy house, some said a sculpture, some (myself included) didn’t notice the stump at all. Jeff had originally planned for the dead tree (cut to about 6 feet tall) to be carved into a bear, but while on vacation in the Midwest, he and Nancy happened upon a Little Free Library. They fell in love with the idea, and over the course of a few weeks, Jeff transformed the stump into the Treehouse Little Free Library. It is the 42,799th Little Free Library in the world, but the only one in Rio Blanco County. Jeff said they’ve already had a double turnover of books and have received plenty of donated material to keep the selection fresh. The Little Free Library nonprofit organization seeks to “promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.” Go to littlefreelibrary.org to find out more about the organization and don’t forget to stop by the Treehouse Little Free Library at Sixth and Garfield to find your next great read.

  1. Wow that is a great idea. Thank God there is people still in this world that is willing to go the extra step so other my have what they have had.

  2. I have enjoyed this Little Free Library on my two visits to Meeker this summer. I love being able to walk over and pick out a book. I borrowed one in July, read it, and returned it in September in exchange for another book. The book quality (topics and condition) is excellent. Thanks!
