Little Free Libraries are constructed boxes that house books, which stay stocked via the concept of “take a book, leave a book.” According to Kris Coronado’s article for the Washington Post, Little Free Libraries Have Made a Big Impact Globally, today there are 80,000 Little Free Libraries in more than 90 countries. You may have noticed some in your local travels, you may have one on your front lawn, or you may be familiar with the concept from Pinterest or Instagram. This past May marked the 10th anniversary of the first official Free Little Library.
So today we’d like to ask you, how do you share books with others? Do you have a Free Little Library of your own? Or do you lend books to friends and family?
