Little Free Libraries are all the rage

The concept of roadside free libraries dates back to 2009, when Todd Bol of Hudson, Wis., built one modeled after a one-room schoolhouse as a tribute to his schoolteacher mother who loved to read.

The Little Free Library Movement Gains Momentum

Little Free Libraries are popping up in towns and cities across America. Often built and assembled or sponsored by local book lovers, the mini-library offers patrons to take a free book in exchange for putting another one back on the shelf. No library card is required. So far, there have been no reports of anyone trying to abuse the library boxes.

 

For more info on the Little Free Library movement, check out the website http://littlefreelibrary.org/getinvolved/. Also, If you spot any Little Free Libraries in your area, please take a photo and share it with all of us here at Booklikes! 

 

This Little Free Library was just spotted in the Asheville, NC, area by local photographer Sam Ganly.

 

 

 

This "Little Free Library" pre-dates today's models by about 80 years. This is from London during the 1930s.

It was a gorgeous day so we grabbed the dogs, my bag full of unloved books and headed out to a fabulous beautiful park which, in its previous incarnation, was once a famous zoo/amusement park. Now it's a lovingly maintained dog friendly place and it just got a whole heck of a lot better with the addition of an adorably oversized Little Free Library which is kept well stocked by the community. I dropped off nine books with Bookcrossing labels and walked away without taking any home with me. Aren't you proud?  

 

Is anyone else here a bookcrosser (or am I the only complete geek here?) and do you have any Little Free Libraries nearby?  I am so ridiculously excited about this!
