Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries

Have you ever come across a Little Free Library in your neighborhood or anywhere else? There are over 100,000 of these miniature lending libraries around the globe where anyone can take or leave a book. But in the early pandemic, some people replaced books with canned goods, toilet paper, cleaning supplies and yarn and needles to give away.

If you were to construct a Little Free Library in front of the place where you live, what would you want it to look like? What would you put inside to give away? Why?

Tell us in the comments, then see more of the related illustration, or visit a news article that shows many real-life Little Free Library examples.
