Severna Park will soon have a new ‘Free Library’ along the B & A Trail. A long-time dream of ‘The Big Bean’ Coffee Shop owner, Deb Hoffman, who put out a request over Social Media to find someone who would build a “Free Library” for the deck on stairs leading from the trail to the back of her restaurant. in Severna Park, MD. Jim Fernen of VERTEX Carpentry stepped forward to make this happen.
A “Free Library is a small, accessible box with a closing lid that resides outdoors. Patrons can either share a book or borrow a book from the collection. In the conversation between Jim Fernen, Vertex Carpentry, & Deb they chose the old Severna Park Library building as a model for the final design.
“It won’t be completely to scale,” says Jim,”It’s will more evoke the feeling of the turn of the last century building.” When the shell is completed local area Boys Scouts will be a part of the decoration process.
Here is the beginning of the construction of the actual box. We’ll post the progress as the decoration moves alongng.
