HFA intern architect helps dedicate Little Free Library project

HFA's Little Free Library design

Matt Turner of HFA dedicates the Little Free Library he helped design on South School Avenue in Fayetteville.

FAYETTEVILLE (May 11, 2016) — HFA teamed up with the Ozark Literacy Council earlier this month to dedicate the latest installation in the council’s Little Free Library program.

The newest Little Free Library is the design of HFA’s own Intern Architect Matt Turner, along with former HFA Intern Architect Esteban Ayala.

Their design, “Pequeña Biblioteca,” took second place in the Ozark Literacy Council’s contest for Little Free Library designs.

Sponsored by Dick and Margaret Rutherford, the library’s design includes hidden benches that slide out, allowing users to sit and enjoy a book on the spot. The vertical wooden fins are made to resemble the pages of a book, and the UV-resistant acrylic container protects books from the elements, including the sun’s rays.

The new library is located at 831 S. School Ave. next to the Frisco Trail, and between Archetype Productions and the El Camino Real restaurant. The library is part of the Ozark Literacy Council’s program born in 2009 to provide little libraries throughout the area, with a “take a book, return a book” approach. HFA is proud to be one of the designers associated with the project.
