Little Free Library is the Book Drive that Everyone Can Join

Some people think that books are slowly going ‘obsolete’ because of Nooks, Kindles, and iPads. To them, I say: think again. While I have nothing against these digital readers, I think that there’s just something different and special about reading a physical book with pages you can actually turn and feel in your hands.

Now it’s time to cue the Little Free Library, which is a movement that aims to make books more accessible in neighborhoods all over the world.

Little Free LibraryBasically, people build tiny ‘libraries’ and put the structures on their front lawns. Most of the Little Libraries I’ve seen look like bird houses, but you can put your own unique (and creative) spin on it and come up with one that looks like a miniature phone booth or double-decker bus.

Here’s how it works: you put your own Little Free Library up, stock it up with books, and tack on a sign that tells people take a book – but come one to leave one of their own the next day. It’s kind of like paying it forward to random people who all love to read.

It’s also fun and totally random too, because you never know what books your little library will end up with the next day.

Find out more about the movement and how to build your own little library by checking out the Little Free Library website.
