The Little Free Library Cochranville:
A little-bit-bigger little free library
1016B PA Route 41, Cochranville, 19330
about 3.5 miles north of Street Road Artists Space
Remember you can always get in touch to arrange a visit outside of regular hours.
Dear Street Road Friends,
Due to Covid-19 we are being extra cautious: both Street Road and The Little Free Library will be closed until March 31st.
During this time, our outdoor installations here are open and you are welcome to enjoy them (see the small silver metal signposts dotted around). Our Little Free Library outdoor box is always open, 24/7, as usual, and is being restocked with (wiped down) books regularly.
In this period of 'social distancing' we invite you to think with us about possibilities for more, and better, social attachments, and to revisit (online or in person) one of our installations in particular: Folly, an ongoing work that is a place of contemplation, both of conflict and of mutual support.
Created by Anthony, Dennis and Nicholas Santella, Folly is a sculpture that provides a shelter in which to consider threads of craft and fear that run through our relationships with land and with each other, the search for safety, conflict, and the ever-present attraction of barriers. In acknowledgment of the fact that the closest approximation to safety is found in community, all are invited to contribute to Folly by spending a little time here, and by sharing their thoughts in the journal available in a box within the fortification.
If you are staying put, you can walk through Folly virtually, here.
In love and solidarity,
Street Road Artists Space
Street Road has established the Little Free Library Cochranville as a community resource where people gather to explore, interact and imagine. As well as shelves packed with free books, we offer dedicated shelves curated by community members, children’s book readings, art classes, art exhibitions, public lectures, and book groups. We welcome ideas for classes and activities so please let us know what is of importance to you.
LITTLE, BUT BIGGER: Because we are bigger than other little free libraries (littlefreelibrary.org) we have free books, a lending section and a permanent collection, all visible here on the Libib app, so we’re sure to have the book for you.
Drop by and grab a book, make use of the free wifi, and pull up one of the armchairs and spend a comfortable afternoon reading and chatting – there is also a large desk that can be used for studying, and if we can be of help so much the better.
Our values of cooperation and inspiration and a very good cup of coffee sit at the heart of the Little Free Library, and the best part is that it’s free to everyone.
