I saw one of my work wishes come true last week with the installation of the Little Free Library at Clotworthy House.
The Little Free Library is a becoming a world wide phenomenon as these cute little boxes are popping up everywhere, from Iceland to Mexico promoting reading, sharing and community. A Little Free Library is, quite literally, a box filled with books where anyone can browse, pick a book, read and return it, share a book of their own or donate a book.
You can find out more about the movement on their Little Free Library website and you’ll see us on the world wide map in the next few weeks. It’s been a lovely experience to watch people come across our library, browse the shelves and leave with a book or two! And as a bonus , I know where to send my books when I’ve finished with them!
Now, I wonder if I could get one built and put up in my street…….
Have you had experience of the Little Free Library movement before or do you have a Little Free Library near you? If you’re not sure, go to their website and check out their world wide map!
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
