little free libraries
I saw a news story last night aboutLittle Free Libraries, little boxes of all sorts that people put on their property as places for readers to borrow and trade books.
I LOVE THIS IDEA. The concept of trading books, of making books available to readers who just happen to be in the neighborhood, is so appealing to me. I love books, and I want other people to love books. My friends and relatives already consider my house a place to borrow books--so why not extend the idea to the middle school children who walk by every day on their way to and from school or the neighbors out on walks on summer evenings or spring mornings? I want to be a part of this.
Is there anyone reading who has done this? Are there any issues to consider besides the obvious? I can't think of a better way to be a good neighbor and share what I love. I am so excited!
