Books from the little free libraries have no strings attached. Mystery novels, cook books, picture books for kids, computer programming manuals . . . and enclosures are usually so darn cute! It's exciting to return to these libraries to see what's new - or old (as in beat up, outdated, out of print, or vintage). Some of the little libraries have themes, while others accept a variety of books in the exchange. Some have rules about exchanging, while others leave it up to you to decide how to participate.
My child is intrigued with the concept and wants us to build one. It's a lovely social experiment about community trust. Will people participate? Will anyone contribute? What if the enclosure (library box) starts to fall apart - will an anonymous community member make repairs?
I've come across two in my community. I'm on a little treasure hunt to find more. Nothing like a good book to go with my latte.
Put this on my bucket list:
Build a little free library for our neighborhood.
