The not-for-profit Little Free Library is a book program with locations in 88 countries, with over 75,000 registered Little Free Libraries.

For more than a decade, Sharalee Armitage Howard watched in dismay as the grand cottonwood tree in front of her Idaho home plopped dead branches on her flower gardens and sidewalk.

Then came the last straw: a large branch from the dying, 110-year-old tree tumbled onto her son’s car, causing several hundred dollars in damage.

It was time to cut it down before it toppled in a storm.

But Howard, a book lover who works at her local library in Coeur d’Alene, felt an attachment to the tree. She wanted to give it a new life. She had no idea her creation would not only become the talk of her neighborhood, it would fly across the Internet on social media, reaching people around the world.

Howard designed a Pinterest-worthy Little Free Library that is so delightful it looks like the home of a family of magical elves. The converted stump-turned-book-offering is complete with stone steps leading to a tiny glass French door, a hanging lantern, shelves and a peaked roof.

The top of the door is dotted with tiny wooden replicas of books such as “The Grapes of Wrath,” “Nancy Drew” and “Little Women.”

When Howard posted a photo of her creation on Facebook in December, it raced around social media as people shared it more than 100,000 times and left more than 13,000 comments. And the comments are still coming in as people discover her charming tiny book chalet:

It’s a portal to another world on so many levels! Cheers to you and thank you for making the world a little more delightful!” commented a woman in New York.Howard figured her “little tree library” — as some now call it — would be eye-catching, but she didn’t expect such a huge response.

She has hundreds of regular book visitors and a continual turnover of titles. So much so that her family hasn’t had to stock the shelves with volumes of their own since it opened in December with several dozen books.
