Little Free Library

Have you heard of Little Free Libraries? Individuals volunteer to build and maintain them where they live. Anyone can take or deposit books. They can be found all over the world. The website has all the details as well as a map of locations. Locally, within a mile of where I live, there are three. I see that two of them are not listed on the official map. (If you know me in “real life” and want the addresses of our little free libraries, feel free to contact me.) I thought it would be fun to show you “mine.”

Taken two days ago (we had a little snow, since melted)

Love the red

Looks like repurposed cupboards

I haven’t visited these too frequently (I also have a public library just about a mile from home and I’m there often). Now that I am committed to reading more, like I used to, maybe I’ll increase my visits. Mostly, I’ve returned books I’ve taken to where I found them but here are two I kept (I just found the vegan book and already made the creamy lentil soup).

When I stopped to take photos today I found the current issue of Martha Stewart Living so I snapped it up.

    We have a few in our general neighborhood. I haven’t used one yet, but they do bring a smile to my face each time I see one. I am lucky to have three public libraries within a 2 – 2.5 mile drive from our home. I wasn’t aware that there was an official map of the Little Libraries locations.

      Wow, sounds like you have the mother load of libraries! The little ones are charming to me too. I don’t think you’re ever in any danger of being “snowed in” so you don’t need ’em for that… I keep them in mind if desperation should ever hit!
