Little free libraries your thoughts?
I think it’s a great idea!So I just heard about them I want to put one up just got to figure out how I don’t know Anything about construction.
There’s a converted phone box in my neighbourhood, but it doesn’t work very well. People use it to dump unwanted books in there, but they’re often so old and so damaged that nobody wants to borrow them. So the box just gets filled with junk, and the Jehova’s Witnesses fill up any gaps with their magazines.
We have several of them in our city and they do really well!
Didn’t know our town had one then saw this when we went out to dinner… love it!
Lots of them in Wisconsin (United States). I even have one.
The headquarters for the non-profit is in Hudson. ♡
A local Starbucks has a take a book leave a book shelf, took a book or two left a couple as well, that might be a thought!
I saw a hair salon that did this…great idea!
I have one in front of my house. My hubby built it for me. ?
If I ever own my own house I will put one up as well. Unfortunately I live in an apartment block and am not allowed to put things on the lawn out front.
Wow! That would be the perfect place. Maybe you should ask permission??
I’ve already asked permission to install a cat door in the panel of my (ground floor) balcony, and to put my business name on the letterbox. Don’t want to push it. Also, they removed my neighbour’s currant and gooseberry bushes he’s been growing outside his window for years without warning.
Our area has a few…they do well!
We love them. I can go in almost any direction and find one. On a side note, I volunteer with three libraries and this is where I place books about twice a month when the Friends of the Library can’t use them in their book sales due to condition.
So they aren’t recycled, I rotate the donations between boxes each time and find new ones to drop off at too. ?
I love them. I used to have one on my street. I used to stock it with paperbacks from my collection that I wasn’t planning on reading again.
Love them! I think they are a great idea!
If you go to their website you can plug in your zip code to find the nearest one
Great idea but I worry the kids here will set it on fire!!
I love them. They are great place to donate review books I don’t keep.
It’s such a great neighborhood library.
I love them, and have been wanting one for a long time. But the kits are too expensive, and I don’t have anyone who can build one for me…
I think literacy is so important These little libraries are such great ideas and I’ve even seen a little free pantry’s for homeless people or low income people to get free food like canned goods and such even clothing
Free libraries and lending libraries are awesome.
If anyone on here is from (north) Burnaby, British Columbia and knows where one is, please let me know. I haven’t found one yet. Thanks!
I just looked on the website, nothings been started in England, shame such a lovely idea!
@Nikky Maybe you should be the one to start one
I wouldn’t even know where to start ??
@Nikky I don’t have one started either but I’m thinking of it and I’m not a Carpender but where there’s a will there’s a way for both of us to figure it out
Love these. I have so many in my neighborhood.
I love Little Free Library; I routinely donate copies of @Your to them!!
i reside in a small town and we do have 2 of them and always empty. nobody really seems to be using them. sad.
<3 so much!
Love the idea.
They’re great! My two little ones love them! It’s always fun to get a new book!
Love seeing them. It’s proof that books are still treasured.
Good for neighborhood
I like to put books in them that I’ve read, but don’t want to keep.
I love them.
They’re adorable! There’s one in the car line at our kids’ schools, but you can’t get to them from the car, and the kids can’t get to them because of the cars. So location is key! I worry about moisture damage, but think they’re a great idea!
