Chichester’s Little Book Houses

Sometimes it does take a “village” to get a project completed. The Little Book Houses, located at Carpenter Park and the Grange/Town Hall parking lot are a case in point.


Early in the Spring Lucille Noel noticed an example at Atlantic Heights in Portsmouth. Little Book Houses are in many places across the United States as part of the Little Book House Movement.  So why not in Chichester? The library trustees and the LOCL were enthusiastic and voted to underwrite the cost to build two book houses. Linda Clement and partner from 1804 Homestead Crafts used vintage barn boards for the construction. The Little Book Houses have been decorated by the artistic abilities of Frank Curatolo and Richard Pratt. Laurie Nichols made a special sign. The posts for the houses are from Paul Adams’ historic long needle pine tree. The posts were cut to length and put in place by Jim Plunkett. Bernie Reinhardt sealed both posts with a waterproof preservative. The final step was the placement and attachment of the little book houses on the posts. This was completed by Nate Bronnenberg.


Books are supplied by the Chichester Town Library book sale room and individual donors. Stop by and “Take a Book, Share a Book”. Chichester is now part of the National Little Book House Library Movement. Thanks to all who made it possible.
