I was thrilled to open this morning’s Philadelphia Inquirer and see the article, “Build Your Own: Little Free Library” on the front page of the Home section. Little Free Library (LFL) is a global grassroots movement that encourages literacy through the free exchange of books. Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin who not only sells LFLs but also keeps track of them in a registry. LFLs are usually in public spaces and hold free books for the taking and encourage you to leave books as well. They can look like everything from a mini schoolhouse to Dr. Who’s Tardis. See some great designs on Pinterest.
The Friend’s of Upper Dublin Public Library installed one last Fall in Mondauk Common in Ft. Washington and it has been a great success. If you haven’t been yet – please stop by and grab a book or leave one!
