Little Free Library Build Day

“Take a book, leave a book!”

EVENT DATE: Sunday, December 8, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
VENUE: Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, 13325 Beach Ave, Marina del Rey, CA, 90292

Design, build, and paint your very own Little Free Library box to install in your yard, and ­become a ­community-building catalyst in your neighborhood! Boxes are popping up all over town, even in front of offices and apartment buildings.

We’ll be constructing libraries using recycled ­materials whenever possible (bring some if you have them!) and working from a Little Free Library template. We can also help you with something more free-form if that’s your style. It’s a great way to learn basic woodworking skills from our friendly handy­people while making new friends. And if you happen to be one of those handy folks, please bring your tools.

Join us for this fun day of ­creativity and community ­connection—just in time for the holidays!
