Woman Turns A 110-Year-Old Dead Tree Into A Free Library For Her Neighborhood

Sharalee Armitage Howard is a librarian, artist, and former bookbinder from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Instead of digging up and destroying a dead 110-year-old cotton tree stump in her front yard, she had the amazing idea of turning it into a free tree library. The stump was carved out from the inside, given a roof, and lit up with an adorably cozy interior. This is definitely the most charming free library I’ve ever seen — take a look for yourself!
