UPDATE: There’s a 5th library on 14th Avenue NE just north of NE 107th.
Two new Little Free Libraries have been added to Victory Heights in addition to the two existing libraries installed in 2013. The first one is on the south side of NE 105th Street just east of 20th Avenue NE (pictured left). This was funded from the CleanScapes fund that was awarded to our neighborhood in 2013.
The second Library is up on the west side of 15th Avenue NE just north of the mosque on Northgate Way. The previous libraries are on NE 106th, a block west of Victory Heights Park, and on the corner of 23rd Avenue NE & NE 104th Way. Be sure and check them out as you wander around the neighborhood. Here’s a compete map:
At last night’s meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council, Recology (formerly CleanScapes) has announced the purchase of 50 Little Free Libraries to be distributed to neighborhoods as part of its Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards Program (which you might remember from last year).
Read the complete minutes from the November Meeting.
Recology recently sent post cards out to residents to announce their program and a contest to receive a Little Free Library at your home (keep in mind Victory Heights already has two of them, one at NE 106th Street and 17th Avenue NE (pictured here), and at 23rd Avenue NE & NE 104th Way). To enter, email Erika Melroy (firstname.lastname@example.org) before December 4, 2015. Your email must include your name, mailing address, and why you’d like to receive a Little Free Library.
Other business at last night’s meeting included a reminder from the Seattle Police Department that when you see suspicious activity in the neighborhood to call 911 first, THEN post about it on social media sites like Next Door Neighbor. This is important for tracking crime statistics. If the police don’t know where the problem areas are, they can’t put resources there.
Victory Heights is the envy of other neighborhoods with the news of our $893,000 parks renovation project from the Parks Department. Speaking of which, representatives from Parks will be at the December 15th meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council to do a presentation and hear feedback about the project, so mark your calendars to attend.
