Our Little Free Library book exchange box arrived today - it will be installed outside so that people can take a book and return a book at anytime day or night. We're thinking of filling half of it with books for children and young adults and half with fiction and health and cookery books for their parents - the kind of reading you may crave or need on your way home from work.
And the felt coasters arrived - their journey was long but they are beautiful.

A word about 'here':
We acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the Lenape, original people of the mid-Atlantic area, forced west by British and US governments. Most Delaware Indian tribe descendants are now located in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario. Lenni Lenapes in Pennsylvania are not officially recognized as tribes by the United States, though an estimated 5000 Lenape Nation descendants live in the Delaware River area. We pay respects to the Lenape people both past and present. Please consider the many legacies of violence, displacement and settlement that form part of our collective histories. While increased public recognition of these legacies and processes of redress such as Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission are positive steps, concrete focus on return of land and land rights remains a distant horizon.
