About this project

Murfreesboro, TN:  One of the fastest growing cities in the United States. Between 2000-2010, our population increased 58%!  

For about a year now, I have lived in one of the larger apartment complexes in the city (Hawthorne Park South) we have 40+ buildings, each with 8 units ranging from 1-3 bedrooms, so when fully rented, we have about 900-1,200 residents.  

Costs : Why $1,250?
Here's the cost breakdown:

$475 (x2) for the library itself;
$70 for registration on the Little Free Library site:
$60 for mounting hardware;
$170 for books in the library (the exact number will depend on reward levels)

$1,250 allows us to build TWO really neat libraries.

Location:  

We will have two libraries.  Each one would be placed near the mail centers (each serving half the complex).

I will register both libraries with TinyFreeLibrary and act as the steward for both.  

Risks and challenges

Getting Books: We have a used book store in town willing to donate some books to start us off.

Complex Approval: I have already obtained approval from the complex manager. In fact, if successful, they stated that they would most likely roll this idea out to the rest of their properties!
