I used 8.5″ by 11″ card stock folded in half for table labels. I hand-printed the various categories and spread them throughout the house.
Since the books will be spread all over the ground floor of the house, including the porch, I’ve made a simple map to guide folks to the various piles of books both for contributing the books they brought and taking the ones they want.
The kitchen, while not housing any books, will be the service area for our food. That’s on the map as well.
We’ve had quite a bit of rain this week so our thoughts of people eating outside has sort of fallen by the wayside as the yard is fairly wet and in some places muddy.
Still there’s plenty of seating in the kitchen, in the living room and in the conservatory.
This morning we’re finishing up the food prep and waiting for everyone to show up.
What’s your rainy day mantra?
