Little Free Libraries

Let me tell you a story.

Like many stories, it starts with a journey.

Okay, so it wasn’t a “journey” exactly. I was on a walk. It was a nice day. But in my defense, the area where I live has a lot of nooks and crannies to explore.

So I was walking around on this sunny day, admiring the pretty houses, when all of a sudden I noticed a small shelf sitting on the sidewalk, the kind that’s like a little cubby with glass doors on the front.  

I stopped. What was this madness?

So I looked inside and guess what I found?

BOOKS! So many books! So many FREE books!

Someone put this adorable little bookshelf in front of their house specifically to let people take books. There’s just one catch: you have to come back with a book to replace it. 

I took a travel book about Venice, Italy, a place I’m determined to visit someday. I still haven’t replaced it, oops…

I found out there’s a website for this. It’s called a little free library. People do this all over the world! What a great way to build community.

This has me thinking about starting a little library of my own. 

Have you ever run into one of these? If not, you should think about starting your own!
