Little Free Library 24274 in Tacoma

imageThis Little Free Library is located in the 1400 block of Prospect Street in Tacoma and is part of the Little Free Library Project. This Little Free is unusual in that it is made of legos including lego figurines. There is a scene on the top and a small lego figurine living unit on the side. Inside their are books for children.

Little Free Libraries is part of a community movement which offers free books. When I considered my first Little Free Library in November 2012, a Wikipedia article informed me that there were over 200 of these libraries. Per their website, there are now over 25,000!  Each of the libraries is registered and can be located by their GPS coordinates. In October 2015 the Little Free Library was honored by the Library of Congress for Creating Communities of Literacy.

Snowman at Noel’s House of Bricks

11413153073_1e7da25d2d_hNoel’s House of Bricks at Freighthouse Square has a darling snowman in their window. The space is at 2501 E D st Tacoma Wa #46 and they recently opened for business. I was there just before the center closed and House of Bricks wasn’t open, as they clearly stated on their Facebook Page. This is their second location with the first being in Olympia.


City Blocks for Serious Fun

Yesterday I stopped at Freighthouse Square for dinner before I went off to a class. While there I stopped at City Blocks, which is at 440 East 25th Street, Suite 46, Tacoma WA 98402. Their facebook page says that they are the “The world’s only public LEGO Commercial Art Studio”. Indeed when I visited they were happy to show me the Lego custom pieces they were working on and they were pretty cool! More info can be found on their Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/cityblocks
