    Great way to easily get your little free library set up and running. I've built my own little free libraries in the past but it's certainly a lot of work. When I saw this option from Simplay3 I thought I'd give it a shot as a more ready-to-go option. I was not disappointed! Assembly is trivially easy with just a few big parts and screws. If you're using this inside it balances nicely and would be at home in any preschool type setting. If you want to put this outside by a sidewalk, for example, you simply need to sink a 4x4 post in the ground, ideally in concrete. That's the same approach as any mailbox and if you're not feeling up to it you'd have no trouble finding a handyman or landscaper to do that small job. While the capacity is a little on the small size it's more than adequate for most collections and book sizes. When I build them myself I tend to like to make them taller but that certainly complicates things. This would have no trouble holding about two dozen books. I particularly like that it has a large clear window on the front, which is what entices people to come up and check out your books. The roof is well designed and should keep everything safe and dry inside (though I haven't had it through rain or snow yet to confirm.) Additionally, the way this connects to the 4x4 is sturdy and well designed. That's often a complicated point for custom made libraries. Who is this for: Anyone looking to share books or other things with their neighbors or in a preschool Who isn't this for: Honestly the only reason not to get this one is if you want to build something custom or get something larger. Conclusion: This is a great option that I'll happily recommend to anyone looking to easily get their own little free library.

    The Simplay3 Sharing Library Box in Burnt Red and White with Mailbox post is a sturdy, yet lightweight sharing mailbox/offering box to hold either books or other items that can readily be accessed or shared in a library/park/school/household environment. The Box is super easy to put together, although you will need either an indoor mounting kit for inside use or a 4x4 for outside set up. The only drawback as I see it is that it is not an all in one kit for either outdoor or indoor use. You will need to buy something else to set this up fully. The door opens and closes nicely and the plastic is cleaned very easily. A great idea if you have things to share, this sharing mailbox could be the talk of your block, town, or classroom.

    There are a few little libraries in our neighborhood, so we decided to have one too. Instead of buying an expensive wooden one which will rot in a few years where we live, we decided to go with this Simplay3 Sharing Library in plastic. It was very easy to assemble and comes with everything you need, except for a 4x4 that you need to put into the ground. It looks like good quality, even though I'm a little concerned that the red roof will fade and then make the whole thing look cheap. Red is always the first color to fade.

    Sharing is Caring, and that is what our neighborhood needs and wants. This Mailbox type lending library is also great for building responsability in our youth. We like it, and we intend to keep it out front along with some other neighbors to allow our children to read more books rather than the same ones over again. We like that it allows our families to take walks around our street, talk and trade books, CDs even letters. Reading is essential to our childrens knowledge, vocabulary, and imagination. The kids love it, almost thinking it is a game. They look forward to our morning walks, coming home and reading. The manufacture of this box is such that if it were to rain, any moisture collected inside will drain by way of the ribbed floor. The high grade Plastic material is sturdy and strong, all hardware is included, but the 4 x 4 post. I plan to get a 4 x 4 post 21 3/4 inch tall post and a base of plywood to be able to move it in and outside and with the added base weight, when we get the big Florida wind, it will not get knocked over.

    Amazing Mailbox. Better than expected. Very solid, well built and strong. Waterproof and fade resistant too. Interior is large enough for a small package or two. I already had a mailbox mounted on a 4x4 stud so mounting this one was a breeze. Hardware and directions included. Has a magnetic clasp to keep the door closed. Can also be mounted indoors but the optional stand is not included. Available as an extra purchase. Love the shape, design and color. Highly recommended.

    The Sharing Library Box is perfect for sharing my abundance of eggs, produce and fruit from my flock and orchards among my neighbors, some of whom are elderly and have limited means. The box itself is ample in size, well constructed of near indestructable heavy duty plastic. The box center support slides over a 4x4 post with anchoring points. I especially like the clear plexiglas door that allows vision of contents w/o opening. It was a breeze to install. I've positioned the box near my front walk gate in a sheltered place somewhat obscure. That way folks can walk up to the Sharing Box, take what they need and not feel like there's a spot light on them. This box is a perfect size, I can place several dozen egg cartons in there or basket of fruits, berries or vegetables. I feel good about being able to so discretely share my abundance with those in need. Consider doing the same for your neighborhood.

    Fairly easy to install - instructions were good. Biggest challenge was making the post level on a concrete driveway. Several people have taken advantage of the library.
