I worked on this project very actively for about a year to go from idea to in the ground reality. I was able to collaborate with varies nonprofit and governmental organizations I served on the Friends of the Hiawatha Library Board worked with the Trustees Board and the Parks department to get this OK'd I had local artists paint 3 of them and then had one painted by kids at the elementary school across from the park. the 4th Little Free library went to the town of Fairfax Iowa it was the 1st and only Little Free library that town has.
