Free Little Library

Okay, I love the Free Little Library idea!! Free Little Library has been featured on NBC Nightly News, "All Things Considered" on NPR and written about in the USA Today Newspaper. Their mission statement is as follows:
  • To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
  • To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.  
  • To build more than 2,510 libraries around the world--more than Andrew Carnegie!
I think the idea of building free small libraries within communities around the world is a great idea. People within the community may leave a book and take a book... Another perfect way to exchange books and the love of reading with other like minded people!! 

Check out the map on their website to see if a Free Little Library is located near you. If not, maybe you'll become inspired to start one in your own community!

  1. My mother loves this idea, too, and wants to put a Free Little Library by her mailbox. She lives way out in the country, so I'm not sure whether it will work well.

    I'm too stuck on Bookcrossing and wild releasing. My Free Little Library would really just be an Official Bookcrossing Zone.

    1. I'd love to put a free library in my yard, but I live in a condominium complex... So, all grassy areas are common areas outside my domain are off limits for such activities. :-(

      I love Bookcrossing too.... If I could set up a little free library in my yard, it would do double duty as a free library and OBCZ!! Why not?
