Little Free Libraries Hit the Streets of NYC

The Little Free Library isn’t a new movement, although it’s definitely still a novel one. We covered this neat project almost a year ago, where we saw participants build mini “libraries” that looked like they were converted from old mailboxes and birdhouses.

The new Little Libraries in Manhattan, however, take the movement to the next level.

Ten designers were chosen to create Little Libraries for the borough and the one you see above was created by Stereotank. It’s a pretty apt creation given the name of the group, as the Little Library looks like it was fashioned from an old water tank.

It’s spacious and offers temporary rain shelter while housing a rich selection of books that’ll satisfy curious passersby.

Those who have books to share can also drop their old volumes into the library, adding to its selection so that there’s more choices and more stories to pass along.

Stereotank’s Free Little Library is located at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School in Nolita and it will be there until September of this year.
