“The Story Pod, a community-supported lending library designed by Atelier Kastelic Buffey (AKB), is helping to invigorate the Town of Newmarket. The intensifying suburb, due north of Toronto, has a Victorian-era core surrounded by ever-growing tracks of modern housing. The pod, placed on the edge of a prominent, recently completed civic square, in the heart of the town’s historic district, continues the municipality’s plan to use contemporary design as a means of creating a lively, current-day hub for gathering within the leafy, quaint setting. This spirit of community cohesion comes through in the pod, having been imbued in the design from the earliest days of its inception.’

Someone had asked me a while back, how I put my quarter sheet on.

This way seems to work really well for me, and it doesn’t move - however, I only flat with a quarter sheet.

I put the pads on, set the QS on my horses butt - front folded back, put my saddle on, then secure the front velcro tab. I put the side pieces between the leg flaps, but under the girth billets. Doesn’t seem to get into the way when tightening the girth and it stays in place 👍
