Oh! I am in LOVE with this idea of a little free library!! I guess these are popping up all over the world! The teacher in me screams, “YES!!!! Literacy in a personal, fun way!” How fun would the neighborhood kids (and adults) have grabbing a new read and replacing it with an old favorite? And doesn’t it seem so Little Women to you? Remember the “mailbox” the March girls and Laurie had?
So, the gist of the Little Free Library is this: You create in your own neighborhood a little reading nook, where neighbors and friends can exchange books; your own personal library in your small community.
For more info, go here. This is where it all originates from.
This is where I first saw the idea and got the picture above. I love the look of the one above.
Question: Have you heard of these before? Have you tried it in your neighborhood and how has it done?
