To celebrate reading today, and every day, we have two custom-painted Little Free Libraries at The Street Chestnut Hill. We have partnered with the incredible artistic duo, thecollab (who are also local teachers!), to design these libraries special for The Street community. We’ll regularly be stocking our libraries with some of our favorite books for all ages, and encourage you to swing by and grab a new read, or donate an old favorite.

Our Little Free Libraries are located next to Legal Sea Foods and Star Market.

About thecollab:

thecollab is the coming-together of artist educators and longtime friends, Jaimie & Kate. In our work, we consider ourselves creative problem solvers, using color, shape and texture as abstract storytelling tools on a variety of surfaces. We are focused on crafting unique, engaging spaces, experiences, and goods that invoke energy, joy, and community.

We believe that art and design are essential to the human experience and that public art has the power to connect communities, empower individuals, bring joy to its viewers, and elevate brands. Our collaboration process is both structured and intuitive; it relies on our ability to successfully weave together our individual visions to complete thoughtful, dynamic artworks. We are proud to build partnerships that value genuine and fruitful collaboration with the community, fostering growth, connection, and a sense of welcoming through art!
