The Local Library . . .


This is another little discovery from my recent trip to Boise, Idaho.  Some of you may be familiar with these already.  Evidently they are scattered 'Worldwide'!   When I went to the website for them I couldn't believe I hadn't heard about them before.  They are everywhere!  This one popped up recently on the front lawn of  one of my friends neighbors.   The Homeowner built it himself and supplied the initial books.  Borrowing a book is free and it just requires that you return it or exchange it for another book.


Several of the neighbors were skeptical that anyone in the neighborhood would use it but they daily see people stopping and borrowing books, exchanging books and adding books.  It's evidently a hit with both young and old.



The rules and regulations are simple.  Borrow a book, read it, and then return it to any Little Library or pass it on and share it.    If you would like to see more about these Little Libraries you can go to www.littlefreelibrary.org

Happy Reading Everyone!
