Kevin Mahoney
Steward #3119
1303 Lakeside Dr. SW
Alexandria

Mahoney built his own library, which he calls the "Crooked Little Library," and installed it in his front yard in his quiet residential neighborhood. 
Because the program encourages book recycling, he decided to use recycled materials in the construction. 
Concerned that people were hesitant to walk through his lawn to visit the library, he later added a sidewalk leading up to it and is considering adding a bench next to it this summer.
