Take a book, leave a book – sidewalk library in Ballard offers book trading

Posted by Meghan Walker on September 27th, 2012

On the sidewalk of a sleepy side-street in Ballard, a small, glass- and wood-case bookshelf holds a couple stacks of books. A sign just below the bookshelf reads, “Neighborhood Library” and “Take a Book.”

The library, which is near the corner of 13th Ave NW and NW 77th, has a small booklet for people to write about what they’ve taken, left behind, or read.

Thanks for the tip, Signa!

    The soapy water does not have a residual effect, so reapply often,
    especially after rain or watering. The German cockroach is the most common type aand is
    found all over the US. We weree a bit worried so it was welcome news foor us.

    Theyy are built for survival, they say wherever humans can survive so ccan the cockroach, but I am not so sure
    about that they may be able to survive without humans.
    This does not bode well for people who have a tough time killing one cockroach, much
    less attacking a colony of them. Roaches, who survived the
    Ice Age, carry diseases that can cause gastrointestinal problems and even food poisoning.

    This iis a single of the reasons why roaches have these kinds of a negative reputation for becoming dirty and cross contaminating your meals.

    Right Food Storage Because cockroaches arrive in search of food particles and h2o, fkod should really be effectively sealed or packed.
    so I guess if we already have a population oof roaches, we can just bring in some
    house gechos and keep them satisfied. Also, make certain that you get the successful roach killing traps.

    Cockroaches will go anywhere that food is available. This will definitely leave a lingering odor but may not be so pleasant.
    In Roman history, the word is related to the deity Terminus who presided over boundaries.
