The Karmen Lindner Photography Library

As many of you know Karmen Lindner of Karmen Lindner Photography is at the orchard a lot.

She’s taken stunning pictures of my kids and family here as well as many of your children and family.  She is a dedicated photographer that has honed her craft to perfection.  In her hours spent out here she does find a little bit of ‘break’ time and during those times we’ve become friends.

One day, during off season we were hanging out in Baraboo when I saw one of those adorable ‘mini libraries’ you often see in cities.  I mentioned that one of my plans was to put one up at the orchard. (and of course – Karmen had to snap pictures of Pip while we were hanging out.)

This summer I received a super excited message from her saying that her family bought us a fabulous gift!  Woo Hoo!  I love presents!  A few days later she showed up with TWO BIG bins filled with BOOKS!  Perfect for my mini library dream!  Receiving these books was amazing AND it got Jared going on actually building my mini library!

IMG_3192Jared came in the house late one night and said, “You and the girls are going to have to fix it up … it’s looking a bit rough, “ referring to the library he just built.  As soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect!

I did paint "Karmen Lindner Photography Library” on it roughly because of her huge donation to this little project.

When you arrive at the orchard – unlatch the doors and see what book you’d like to borrow!  Take it out and return it when you come back.  IMG_3195This all 100% of an honor system.  I’m also going to try to get through some of my adult books to add to the library so the grown ups can enjoy it just as much!

There’s also a mini little door where the smaller books are hidden.  I think this is my favorite part!

I hope you enjoy our new little library addition at the orchard as much as I do!
