Little Free Library

I ran across an article about "Little Free Libraries" in the newspaper recently and just had to share this wonderful idea! 


Todd Bol has a dream - 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, and to build 2,510 Libraries - as many as Andrew Carnegie - and maybe even surpass that number. His vision became the "Little Free Library" project.

Lovely small houses have been erected worldwide. Each little library is given a number and an official sign and then stocked with a variety of books. Readers are encouraged to leave a book for every book that they take. People are encouraged to leave a message inside the books which they trade. What better way to meet people and share a love of reading?

What a lovely idea! Especially for kids, to inculcate a love of reading and sharing.

I love this! This is so great for the kids that have no way to get to the public library. Or the kids that have no library to go to.

I tried the fudge recipe, won't make it again. :(

Wishing you a beautiful day!
