Have you heard of the Little Free Libraries?
It's an organization that its 'members' have a little kiosk sort of thing in their yard, near their workplace or school, etc filled with books to give away - on the 'take one, leave one' philosophy.
When we pulled into the Hastings, MN Airbnb our friends were staying at, I saw this at the end of the driveway.
A Little Free Library!!
This one had only a few books. But I thought it was rather cute, don't you?
I hadn't planned a book swap but I had a couple books I'd just finished... including one written by a FB friend of mine. I think that Vicki would like that her book was passed on.
And these are the two books that I took for my swap.
OK, so now I was excited. I got on the web site and found they have a map of where every Little Free Library is located.
This one is in Ottawa, MN.
When we made it down to Austin, MN I made a run to the ReStore there. They have great books for only .25c each. I bought a bunch so I was ready...
Austin, MN #1
Is that not the cutest little house/church?
Austin, MN #2
Floyd, IO. Two levels!
That one took some serious picking thru.
Got to talk to the owner of this one.
Hanna City, IL
This big one is outside of an elementary school.
Found a few books for the kids here.
My final Little Free Library of the trip.
I am completely addicted. I've discovered several in the area here at home and have a bag of nice books that stay in the car so I can swap when I find the opportunity.
