Have you heard about Little Free Libraries? I learned about them last year when parents built three of them for my daughter’s K-8 campus.
What makes them special? This from the organization’s website:
If this were just about providing free books on a shelf, the whole idea might disappear after a few months. Little Free Libraries have a unique, personal touch and there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community. These aren’t just any old books, this is a carefully curated collection and the Library itself is a piece of neighborhood art!
I’m a sucker for anything that promotes exploration, reading, community and sharing, but these little beauties have captured the imagination of lots of people.
