A few years ago, I added a Little Free Library out in front of my house. It’s more of a “community-builder” than I could’ve imagined! Neighbors stop to chat, strangers drop off books and become friends, children peek in to see what’s inside for them. And now there’s a second Little Free Library in my town.
I found a note in my mailbox recently from a woman I haven’t met yet, who just wanted to thank me for “running the Little Free Library on my property.” She added, “I greatly enjoy borrowing, returning, and contributing books.”
There’s just something about books…and the people who love books. They bring people together in the best way.
Something else that’s fun–friends send me pictures of interesting libraries they’ve come across. Here are a few unique and notable ones:
If you happen upon any Little Free Libraries, please send me your pix!
