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!

  1. The post office in our itty bitty town has a little free library and I think it’s a wonderful idea. I’ve dropped off some basic quilting books that I no longer need, and some children’s books that my own kids have outgrown or don’t like — I might not be able to stand The Giving Tree, but I know that there are other families who love it.

    • Yes, I am moving to get on at our church too. They are a lot of fun to pass on books and know they are immediately going to another reader! Thanks for stopping by.
