Situated in the heart of Logan, I wanted to provide opportunities for the community to connect. I have had a connection to the area for over 30 years and the reputation does not adequately describe the diverse and friendly people of Logan. I chose to make my footpath a place for people to share their abundance. I wanted it to represent the unique diversity of the area, so I created community vegetable gardens, a hidden swap rock area, a Street pantry, library and market. Very quickly after I launched it, the community grabbed it and transformed it. It is twice the size that I had envisioned, I have a continuous surplus of awesomeness waiting to come out. I refer to it as our gifting economy as a way to honor each other. The library I made with my old spice cupboard and all the other parts were found during curbside collection. Our library represents an environmentally sustainable movement, bring opportunities to an area that is often criticized and rarely accurately described. My kids are blessed to see the value of books and community come together to build endless possibilities.
It's more than just a Library, it's connecting our community and giving people opportunities.
