    Cleveland Park is the best!!!!! Lots of people like to bash CP but it is really an enchanting place to live:-)

    Where else have these been spotted? I can think of two in my neighborhood. One is on the 500 block of A Street SE, and another is over by the interim Frager’s location (something like the 1200 block of E Street SE). I’d love to put one in my yard but they’re expensive and I’m not handy enough to build my own.

      I saw one for the first time last weekend on W (I think?) just west of 13th St. NW.

      There’s one at F St NE and Tennessee Ave NE as well.

    This is my project for the winter, still trying to figure out how to make it blend in with our yard a bit better!

    Not sure I love them, or hate them… I find them a little weird/creepy. Not sure what it is. Sort of like yarn bombs, about which I am also a contrarian.

      I’m sure you’re a blast at parties.

    It gives me a teeny, tiny bit of hope for humanity to see that this thing has survived this long in DC without being tagged or smashed to bits.

      Nobody’s gonna steal books. Haven’t you heard that Chris Rock bit about why you should hide your money in books? :)

        “Books are like kryptonite!” ;)

        I can personally vouch for that! :) Last holiday season, our friendly neighborhood package thief (or theives) spied my Amazon.com box, sliced it open, rummaged through it…and then left the books in the box on my doorstep.

          If they take things away from your step, I advise you comb your local area. I forever find ripped open boxes addressed to places just a few blocks away.

    What happens to these when it snows or really really rains?

      They are constructed to be weatherproof. What happens to your house when it snows or really rains? Same principles but on a much smaller scale. Humidity can admittedly be a problem

    I’ve actually both contributed to and taken books from the Little Library at 13th and W. I love the concept!!!
