Little Free Libraries

I passed this little "neighborhood library" the other day on a run.  Cute, I thought, but it's more than just cute. 

It turns out that this is part of a world wide movement.


Our Mission

  • To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide. 
  • To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity, and wisdom across generations
  • To build more than 2,510 libraries around the world - more than Andrew Carnegie--and then more.
You can buy a library or make one.  They have plans on their website

I think these should be everywhere.

UPDATE Feb 15 7pm:  Here's one more I ran across today.
