We are gearing up for the AJC Decatur Book Festival. Lenz Marketing has done a fantastic job of getting the word out about the festival so if you haven’t heard about it, seen the schedule, seen the articles and blogs, let us know!
We want to highlight the Little Free Libraries here at TheDecaturMinute because they are a really cool idea and look absolutely amazing. Little Free Libraries let you share your surplus books and adorn your yard (or business) with a unique work of art. They are designed to provide weather-resistant outdoor storage of books where neighbors can pick up or drop off reading material.
There are 12 Little Free Libraries available for auction. They were designed and built by Michael Montgomery of Revisioned Furniture and decorated by a variety of well-known local artists, illustrators, and more (including Michael himself). Come and bid on one (or more) of these unique works of art. Your dollars go to support the AJC Decatur Book Festival which is offered free to the community. Plus, you will join a national movement to suppplement our public libraries through sharing books in the community.
Come see Catlanta’s mark, Elizabeth Dulemba’s fanciful creation, Mike Luckovich’s cartoons, and, of course James Dean’s Pete the Cat. They join libraries from Anita Arliss, C. Flux Sing, David Laufer, Greg Farley, Kyle Brooks, Lenz Marketing, and Nell Ruby. AJC Decatur Book Festival board members will be on hand at the Little Free Library tent on the MARTA Plaza to explain the project and to encourage you to bid.
