Over on the FF LSW Room Martha pointed the way to a Neat Story on the Little Free Library.
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!
Your Little Free Library can be for adults ,children, or both. The important thing is to offer a positive selection of good reading that is appropriate to your community. Your collection can be about history, heroes, art; even “how-to” books and classics.
A couple of weeks ago, Holben and a 13-year-old friend drove to Hudson and spent a Saturday constructing their Little Free Library, under Bol's supervision. The following Monday, Bol came to St. Paul, dug the hole for the post, and planted the library. Since then, Holben reported, there has been a steady stream of library users.
