Have any of you ever run across the Little Free Library?
The pictures above are of a tiny little free library in the Ortega district of Jacksonville. We have seen similar libraries in other cities and as far away as the Bahamas at Lubber's Quarters a very small island. The Little Free Library was started Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin in 2009 as a tribute to his mother, who loved to read. He built a model of a one room school house, filled it with books and set it on a post in his front yard with a sign reading FREE BOOKS. The idea took off and there are now approximately 25,000 little free libraries across America. These mini libraries operate on the Take A Book/Leave A Book exchange idea which we have run across at almost every marina we have visited. I think it is a fabulous idea. What do you think? Could your neighborhood benefit from a Little Free Library?
