Little Free Libraries

I’m in a condo, so sadly this isn’t too feasible right now. Definitely something to think about in the future, though.  What a wonderful idea.

When a new library “registers” with the Free Little Library organization, it gets an official number and is added to a Google map where patrons can search for nearby libraries, see photos and stories about each library, and find information about the library’s steward — the person who maintains the library and its collection. Stewards report little trouble with Little Free Libraries (as it says on the org’s website, “You can’t steal a free book”). They may occasionally replace a broken door, but most often they say the libraries have helped them get to know neighbors they’ve never met, when they stop to peruse the collection or donate a book.
