One more build for 2017! Oct 21!

Hello everyone!  Have you been having a great summer?  Ours has been so busy that we haven’t had a chance to build since May – so we’re doing one more build in October!

This one will be different from previous build days – because of reduced autumnal demand, we’ve scheduled only one shift: 10:30 AM.  Or you can pick up a kit to take home if you’d prefer.  The kits are $60 – cash only.  There’s no extra cost to participate in the build (vs taking home the kit).

The build will happen at the Menno Martin Contractor shop in St Jacobs, as before – 1185 King Street N, right near the southern boundary of St Jacobs on King Street.

If you have a powered screwdriver or drill (cordless will be much easier to use), please bring it along!  We have a few for folks to share if you don’t have one.  Everything else that you need for the build will be provided.  You will end up with a lovely little library which you can then caulk, paint, roof and install at your leisure.

Please email Sonya at builds@LLKW.ca with the following info:

1) Your name, and an email address that you check regularly – I can’t emphasize this enough!  We need to be able to correspond with you if plans change.  You will also get a confirmation email soon.

2) Whether you would like to build with us, or if you’d rather pick up a kit instead (between 10:30 AM and noon).  (You can send someone else to pick up your kit if you can’t make it)

3) Which style of little library you’d like (gable or shed – click here to see the styles).

Don’t delay!  The folks on the waiting list got first dibs, and there are limited spots available!  If you’d like to be on the waiting list for a future build, please email Sonya at builds@LLKW.ca and let her know.

Hello everyone!  Are you as excited for LLKW’s 2017 season as we are?  May 13th will be our first community build of the year!

Because of some scheduling constraints, we will likely have to close the sign-ups for this build by April 20th – PLEASE sign up ASAP if you would like to be included!

We will be running two shifts as usual – 9:30 and 11:30, or you can pick up a kit to take home if you’d prefer.  The kits are $60 – cash only.  There’s no extra cost to participate in the build (vs taking home the kit).

2) Which shift you would prefer (9:30 AM or 11:30 AM), and whether you can make the other shift if your first choice is full.  If you’d like to pick up a kit instead (between 10 AM and noon), please indicate that.  (You can send someone else to pick up your kit if you can’t make it)

3) Which style of little library you’d like (gable or shed – click here to see the styles).

Don’t delay!  The folks on the waiting list got first dibs, so the builds are filling up already!  If you’d like to be on the waiting list for a future build, please email Sonya at builds@LLKW.ca and let her know.

First build of 2016 coming soon – April 23

Hi folks!  I hope you’ve had a lovely winter, but I bet you’re ready for Spring!

And with Spring comes our first Little Libraries build!  We’re still putting the details together, but it will be on April 23rd.  We will run 2 shifts again, as usual (likely 9:30 and 11:30).

We don’t have all the details put together yet, so you can’t sign up just yet…

But what you CAN do, is put your name on the waiting list.  Our wonderful volunteer Sonya will be contacting the people on the waiting list first, and there’s a good chance that we will fill up from that list alone.  Email her at builds@LLKW.ca to thank her for the great job she’s doing and to have your name added to the list!

And stay tuned for further details!
