The Little Free Library Project

Have you heard of the Little Free Library?

From the website:

It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.

Little Free Libraries have been turning up all over my neighbourhood and of course I've been having a peek, and occassionally finding a new book to enjoy.  I have decided to add this as a regular series on my blog as my way of sharing the love.

Please feel free to join me in the celebration of the Little Free Library movement!

[And special thanks to Ali Eminov for including this photograph of a Little Free Library in the creative commons of flickr.]

A list of the books I have enjoyed from Little Free Libraries:

  1. Hetty Dorval by Ethel Wilson (1947)


  1. I had heard about this and it seems like such a neat, generous and fun idea. Unfortunately I live on a busy main road so I could not participate. Have fun with it!

    1. I am so excited to see how popular these are becoming around the world. Perhaps you will have a chance to find one on a quiet side-street some time!

  2. That's super cool! I haven't heard of this before, but now I'm thinking I could organise something similar in my neighbourhood. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. I think it is such a wonderful idea. Good luck, Angeliki. And be sure to share your experience if you do start a little library.
