Little free library
My neighbor just opened a little free library. Now, if you don’t know about this movement check out their website at Little Free Library. Essentially you buy or build a small box about the size of a bread box. Then it’s like the “leave a penny, take a penny”, but with books! In other words, if you see a book you like take it, return it if you like when you are done or put different one in.
Our neighbor had a little party with cookies and lemonade for the grand opening. Many neighbors came down to bring books and take books home. I traded Swiss Family Robinson and Eastern Mushrooms for Girl with a Pearl Earring and Trout Country. Steve also donated a copy of his book: How I met Van and Numan Future, Present and Past: Or my first impression of the future by So Cal Punk. It was a great evening of visiting with neighbors who are obviously readers!
