 June Marie Goodwin 
June 23.1939- August 31,2014
This Little Free Library has been created to honor her memory. She was a world traveler and an avid reader.
This is our first Little Library. My husband is overseas and can't build a traditional LFL until he gets home.

 I am incredibly excited to have received our charter. We are Number 23199 in the world , and Number one in La Marque Texas. I have received great support from our Mayor, City Council, Chief of Police and the Genievieve Miller Library.
On June 23,2015 The La Marque City Counsel will Proclaim it to be June Goodwin Literacy Day in the City of La Marque.
 This is a general idea of how this Little Free Library Program Works.
 This is our Motto. It sounds just like something June would have said.
 Trying our Library out for size. I am maintaining a facebook page for people to be able to view what books are currently in the library as well as events we will sponsor such as book clubs, Book lovers tea parties, children's activities and reading contests.
I have done several coats of clear coat over the library and done chalk board paint on each side . I will be writing literary quotes, events etc on the sides. The Library contains a comment book so visitors can communicate with me and others. If they need something special they just have to know on the door. 
The library will be permanently posted outside our home once I am certain the weather is going to cooperate for awhile.

We felt this was the best place for it. It will be a constant reminder that we still have her in every book she read. It also gives me easy availability to ensure it is always maintained.
