Little Free Library – A Novel Idea

“A home without books is a body without soul.” ~Marcus Tullius Cicero

You’ve heard me say it before. I love books! When I find a book I like, I want to share it with others. That’s why the Little Free Library is such a creative idea. It was co-founded by Rick Brooks and Todd Bol of Wisconsin. Structures that look like big bird houses are placed in people’s yards or other community areas. Inside are books people have donated that anyone can take and read. If you take one, you are encouraged to place other books inside to share with readers. By doing this a variety of books are available at all times. This is such a novel idea. I’m totally impressed.

With all of the technology bombarding us today, it’s heartening to see little libraries sprouting up in unexpected places. I encourage everyone to get behind this movement. Build your own Little Free Library or order one. Share your books. Put reading, learning, and literacy at the fingertips of others.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” ~Stephen King
