Have you heard of Little Free Libraries? Found in over 20 countries and 40 U.S. states, it’s quite the trend around the world, and recently reached our back yard as well: Linda and Steve Wells of Mount Vernon created one!
So what IS a Little Free Library, you ask? Well, it’s a grassroots initiative to build more libraries around the world than philanthropist Andrew Carnegie did—2510. They’re simple, tiny shelters with a “take a book, give a book” philosophy. Both NPR and USA Today have features on them… but the fun part is to see them. Each one is unique, of course; and they’re just so doggoned cute.
Visit the site at www.littlefreelibrary.org, and see if you get inspired to join the movement! In the meantime, just enjoy the idea of people who love reading so much, they create little shrines to sharing.
